What Mindfulness in the Classroom Looks Like

This film shows how kindergarteners in Berkeley, San Francisco are introduced to mindfulness.

This 40-minute film, produced by Persona Film, shows how mindfulness can be taught in schools. We’re introduced to kindergarteners at Oxford Elementary School learning the basics of mindfulness: mindful listening, mindful eating, mindful movement, and yoga.

The film includes interviews with Megan Cowan, the director of Mindful Schools, an initiative that offers a mindfulness curriculum to U.S. schools, and brain scientist Richard Davidson, who is founder and chair of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
