It’s great that you have found this site. Together we can work to bring Mindfulness and Meditation techniques to the next generation, providing them with an exceptionally important, life skill.
When I finished my A Levels, before attending University I spent six months in Nepal and was fortunate to learn with Buddhist monks how to practice Mindfulness and Meditation. I remember thinking:
‘Why did I have to travel this far to learn such an important method for experience peace, inner calm and focus, why didn’t anyone teach me this when I was a school ?!’
This thought was to be the seed for the Meditation in Schools Project. Twenty one years later I am travelling the UK, visiting schools and passing on the techniques that I learned from my training.
Working together we can provide the opportunity for children across the world to learn Mindfulness and Meditation techniques.
Browse the site to discover the work that we are accomplishing, watch the videos, listen to a live introductory session for Year 7 and Year 11, read and watch the feedback from students and teachers – here is one of my favourites:
‘Great to see noisy pupils settling to a new sort of calmness. The non denominational, non religious presentation means it is available to everyone and fits in perfectly with the Curriculum Guidelines. It would also be great for staff to learn as it would help relationships.
I hope you can become involved in this project; whether that is inviting a speaker to your school, using the online resources or mobile app in your classroom, or taking the plunge and training to teach yourself.
