Mindfulness is a way of intentionally paying attention to events in the present moment with an attitude of openess, flexibility and non-judgement. Holistic Education offers evidence-based mindfulness training for participants from a wide range of backgrounds and living or working in different contexts. Research shows that regularly practicing mindfulness can improve mental health and well-being and resilience to stress.
Mindfulness for adults, including parents and carers can also help improve health, wellbeing and resilience to stress. Click here for more information about meetups, courses and practice days.
Mindfulness for school staff can reduce staff stress and burnout, leading to less days off work and less feeling of being under pressure from too much to do and too little time. Regular practice can improve coping skills, motivation, planning and problem solving and taking more time to relax. Click here for more information about mindfulness in schools.
There are also specialised courses for those with special educational needs. For more information see the Mindfulness-based Awareness Training course and the MyMind Course.
