Mindful Educators Community

A free resource offering the best practices for bringing mindfulness into the classroom from 25 of today’s leading mindfulness experts and educators.

Caring for teachers is caring for our future! That’s why we’re launching the Mindful Educators Community, a free resource for teachers and parents.

We’ve gathered the best practices for bringing mindfulness into the classroom from 25 of today’s leading mindfulness experts and educators and we’re offering them to you for free.
