Shortly after 9/11, Lantieri saw how educators were struggling to keep the horror of that day from permanently damaging the kids. That’s when she came up with the Inner Resilience Program—mindfulness training geared to help teachers in New York. More than 6,000 staff, 3,000 parents, and 40,000 students have gone through Lantieri’s Inner Resilience Program to date.
You can read more about Lanteri’s work and the Inner Resilience Program in Mindful‘s October 2014 issue.
