Teaching Mindfulness

What if we have the tools to change education by connecting with students and helping to ground their minds and their behavior? How many of us would be willing to step out of our comfort zones in order to make a difference in the chaotic lives of many of our students?  Could meditation be the answer? Take a look at this KQED blog post and let me know what you think.

  1. The comment by Madeline Kronenberg ““When we look at low-performing schools it’s not that these children are unable to learn, it’s that very often they are unavailable to learn,” is something that we seldom take the time to realize. Children are generally not acting out to us, but to their life. Unfortunately projection is a tool we seem to automatically have in our “coping skills box”. What an easy, pleasant and proactive way to help students change these automatic (or learned) responses.
