Great work being done by Jon Kabat-Zinn and others bringing Mindfulness into Education. Mindfulness encourages and develops the emotional intelligence of children.
Introducing and teaching Mindfulness into schools helps senior management recognise that achievement targets are not as important as developing the child as a rounded individual. Teaching children mindfulness helps them to look after their emotions. Children are able to stop and notice what they experiencing and supports stillness and openness. Mindfulness becomes relevant when it is given context and expressed in our culture.
