More and More Schools Turning to Mindfulness

Mindful Schools has taught over 8,500 children in the San Francisco Bay Area about mindfulness through hands-on in-class instruction.

Founded in 2007, Mindful Schools is a program initiative in the U.S. that brings the practice of mindfulness to children right in their school.

This video, which includes selections from the upcoming documentary entitled "Mindful Kids," shows the Mindful Schools in-class instruction program in action.
