Mindful at School: May we give our children roots to grow and wings to fly

Children have to deal with all kinds of stimuli and are increasingly suffering from stress. Mindfulness helps them develop skills for relaxation, concentration and regulating emotions, so they can stay balanced. It is a proven and successful method for stress reduction. Mindful at School is a practical source of inspiration so you can introduce mindfulness to your class in a simple and playful way. In this book, you’ll find:

  • the vision and background of mindfulness
  • research into the effect of mindfulness on children
  • tips for guiding mindfulness with your group
  • 52 complete mindfulness exercises

Doing mindfulness exercises with your group creates a quiet, peaceful moment and gives you renewed energy for the rest of your school day.
