Mindful School. Mindful Community.
Reduced stress and anxiety. Increased focus and self-regulation. Improved academic performance. These are just a few of the many benets of mindfulness, a scientic and skills-based program proven to help students in school and in life. McLean School, located just outside Washington, DC, is a nationally recognized and longtime leader in mindfulness education and knows just how transformative it can be for students and schools as a whole. McLeans mindfulness curriculum is rooted in research and years of experience, and includes a variety of activities and access points for all ages, from kindergarten through high school. Organized around the ve tenets of mindfulness--breathing and body awareness, emotions, heartfulness and gratitude, listening and communication, and engagement of the senses--this guide addresses not only the "what" and the "how," but also the "why" of mindfulness. With the right balance of information and inspiration, this book is a valuable resource for schools and individuals new to mindfulness education, as well as those looking to enhance an existing program.
"Theres a lot to love about McLeans unique approach to mindfulness education, in particular how to make it part of the day-to-day school culture as opposed to a stand-alone program. Its part science, part common sense, and all about giving students valuable and lifelong tools for self-regulation and stress management."
- Molly Love, MSW, LCSW, Lower & Middle School Parent
"McLean tells us upfront: mindfulness itself is not hard, but creating a successful program takes eort. Based on years of experience and renement, McLeans well-organized curriculum makes it easier with thoughtful, practical information that can be easily implemented at any grade level. Ive been amazed by how quickly my students took to a mindfulness practice and what a natural t it is with our whole educational approach."
