Mindful Moments in Education Group Meet-Up

…supporting and sharing: a personal practice, student lessons, and our community.

This group is open to anyone interested in bringing mindfulness into their life and the lives of young people. We focus on three areas of interest: Personal Practice, Student Lessons on Mindfulness and Considering our Community. We hope to share tools, resources, and inspiration for anyone interested in bringing Mindfulness to children and youth. If you are interested in sharing a conversation around a personal practice in mindfulness within education, plan on attending our sharing and caring group, Mindful Moments in Education.
