Practice with Mindful Schools

At Mindful Schools, mindfulness practice is at the heart of everything we do.

We know that coming back to the present moment, again and again, improves our sense of well-being, the quality of our relationships, and the depth of our presence in the classroom and beyond.

“I didn’t think in a million years something like this could make such an impact on my life. I had no idea with all I’m going through that there could be something so simple to bring me the peace and tranquility I’ve been searching for.”

Mindfulness Retreat

A day dedicated to practice, community, and connection

Mindful Schools retreats offer a powerful opportunity to expand and deepen personal practice through more dedicated periods of guided practice.

Join us for a day dedicated to mindfulness practice, community, and connection to strengthen your inner resilience and gain inspiration alongside like-minded educators.

Together, we explore and cultivate a range of mindfulness strategies that support well-being in the classroom and beyond.

“After my first training, I began to see positive changes: less stress, being more present in the moment, and I have become more aware of my thoughts, feelings, and interactions. I am a better person, a better teacher, and a better colleague.”
