We at Kidevolve are huge fans of the MindUP curriculum, developed by the Hawn Foundation (founded by the actress Goldie Hawn). Here is thoughtful account of a school integrating mindfulness into their programming, approach to education and hearts. After implementing the MindUP program at Marysville, the principal , teachers and students saw the difference. Lana Penley, school principal said, "We've seen this huge shift in the overall tone and civility of the school culture,"
Great film that shows how kindergarteners in Oxford Elementary School in Berkeley, San Francisco are introduced to mindfulness in school. They practice mindful listening, mindful eating, mindful movement and yoga. Mindfulness is a way of being and one of the benefits is that it teaches how to pay attention.
