Mindful Schools empowers educators to spark change from the inside out by cultivating awareness, resilience, and compassionate action. Our vision is for all children to learn in “mindful schools” that nurture a new generation of leaders to create a more equitable and thriving world. Since 2007, we have served more than 60,000 educators and their schools through professional development training, community resources and events, and most recently, national schoolwide mindfulness programs.
Working at Mindful Schools
At Mindful Schools, we believe the most effective way to create meaningful change is by instilling a mindful, heart-centered relationship with ourselves and our community. We strive to connect with our bodies, hearts, and minds and to bring awareness into our interactions so that we can embody the change we wish to see in the world. Building a movement for deep systems change can be challenging and inspiring work. We support our team by creating opportunities to cultivate personal mindfulness competencies and by practicing our organizational values with intention and integrity.
