Marching in More Mindfulness Practice Videos for You!

Our Mindful Mentors love to help other kids practice mindfulness, and helped us create under one-minute videos of their favorite practices. Use them for yourself, with your children, or with your class to continue your daily practice.

Brooksfield School in McLean, Virginia has been using the Peace of Mind Curriculum this school year, and has this to share:
"We are so excited to be using the Peace of Mind curriculum in our classrooms this year! Through this curriculum, our students have been working on social and emotional skills, conflict resolution, mindfulness and learning basic neuroscience principles. Each of our classrooms have a peace corner and our students have been practicing cooling down when they are feeling upset. Ask any of our children about Paco, and they can tell you all about mindful breathing! We feel so lucky to have found Peace of Mind and can see the positive impact the curriculum is having on all our students!"
- Carlie Cooney, Family Support Specialist, Brooksfield School
We just returned from another fabulous educator-led conference of the Coalition of Schools Educating Mindfully (COSEM). We explored the role of mindfulness as an equity tool in education and met with Peace of Mind educators from around the country. Peace of Mind presented two workshops about our philosophy of mindfulness and neuroscience as the foundation for effective conflict resolution. We also shared some of our evolving work on using mindfulness as a foundation for equity work.
So inspiring and hopeful to be with so many others committed to meeting the needs of our teachers and schools through mindfulness that helps build awareness and moves us toward kinder more equitable schools. We love this group! Big shout out to COSEM Executive Director Tracy Heilers and Board President Tovi Scruggs-Hussein and team for creating such a deeply meaningful community experience.

COSEM provides mentoring, training and resources to support school communities If you’re not already a member, you can join here (no charge) and also connect with your local chapter.
