Mindfulness in Education

Introducing Buddhist principles into the mainstream of public education:







I say, beware of all enterprises that require new clothes, and not rather a new wearer of clothes.” – Henry David Thoreau, Walden, 1854

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.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
