Personal Development

When teachers develop their own capacity for stress-reduction, attention, and emotional balance, positive change follows in the classroom. Therefore, The Mindful Education Online Training begins with audio, video, worksheets, and live webinar trainings for adults to develop their own mindfulness and emotional intelligence. Our teachers report less burn-out, greater job satisfaction, and that they connect better with their students.


Professional Development

In this full curriculum training you will learn the many benefits of mindfulness in education and the most effective ways of teaching it. Gain the competence to integrate mindfulness and social and emotional learning lessons into daily work with youth.  Gain expertise from videos, webinars, and worksheets from leaders in the mindfulness and SEL fields. Learn fun and easy ways to introduce students to mindfulness.


Implementation and Integration

This program teaches how to integrate mindfulness into existing lesson plans and administrative systems. Learn how even a few minutes per day, incorporated into class routines and curriculum, can make a substantial difference in students’ wellbeing and academic success.  As a multimedia training platform, Mindful Education gives the foundational skills and diverse tools that you can adapt to your students’ needs and your teaching environment.

Of all the endless hours of research I have done, Daniel's methodology with Mindful Education and the five literacies appealed to me the most. Daniel was also very attentive and willing to assist me in any way as I began the journey. It has been an extremely worthwhile endeavor and I have encouraged many of my colleagues to sign on."
