This week we’re joined by Susan Kaiser Greenland a leader in bringing mindful awareness to children and teens. We explore the differences between mindful based approaches and Buddhist approaches, seeing in what ways they are mutually supportive and in what ways tensions exist between them. Susan then shares some of the methods she uses for introducing mindfulness to children in a natural way, while highlighting the importance of that teaching being truly embodied.
To connect with other professionals, teachers, and parents who are using this approach, please visit: MindfulnessTogether.net
Ben wrote:Thanks AB, I was actually researching the efficacy of mindfulness in education outcomes about five or so years ago when i was looking at establishing an anapana meditation (samatha variation) in a school I was working at. Since then the field of mindfulness in different secular applications, including education, has exploded. Since then my wife has incorporated MiCBT into her practice and teaches "mindfulness meditation" to school students, and primary and secondary school teachers.
You might like to know that there have been better conferences organised including one at Cambridge University and another in Germany - both of which my wife was looking at attending this year. There are also better reference materials out there for anyone wishing to investigate the use of mindfulness meditation in the education sector.
The mindfulnet.org site is good, bt the others you provided are for past conference fliers. The blog associated with the antioch university site is not active.
