We have completed the upgrade for the Peace of Mind Training Courses, with new added content including teaching videos, transcriptions of audio, and Certificates of Completion of 2 hours per course. If you didn't get a chance to preview these courses while we were building them, take advantage of our intro promo code NEWUSER for 25% off either course. 
Linda recently talked to the National Education Association Foundation honorees for the Awards for Teaching Excellence.  She spoke to 50 teachers from every state as part of their focus on the whole educator. Her talk was about mindfulness, neuroscience and conflict resolution and how mindfulness practices has personal benefits as a teacher. Participants even got to act out the Rosie’s Brain skit! Here are some photos and tweets from the event:
Lafayette Elementary School will be hosting its first-ever Parent Mindfulness Evening event, for any area parents who would like to learn more about mindfulness and ways it can benefit both you and your child. This event is scheduled for Wednesday, March 13th at 6:30 pm. Mark your calendars and look out for more information coming soon! 
Two of our storybooks are now available at DC-area Costco Stores. Take a look the next time you're picking up groceries, and pick up a sweet story about kindness or gratitude to add to your personal library.  
                           
Mark your calendars for January 2020! We have just wrapped up our first ever conference and are busy making plans for next year's event. We're reaching out to some experts to help us learn more about how we can practice in a way that is trauma-sensitive and meets all of our students' needs. We highly recommend our friend David Treleaven's thoughtful and practical book, Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness. We're hopeful that David himself may be available to join us at our next conference!
Speaking of our recent conference on neuroscience and mindfulness, we are currently working with DCPS's Impact Video Team to trim and edit all the wonderful footage taken. Our plan is to have several short (10 minutes or less) video clips available that capture the keynote and workshop highlights. These videos will be available on our website and as part of our next online course.
We are passionate about supporting educators in bringing mindfulness-based social and emotional learning to students.  We believe this work can change children’s lives for the better and help our schools become more inclusive and positive places.  Please join us on this journey!
