Mindfulness in Education:
Balancing the Heart and Mind
The term "mindfulness" is becoming more prevalent in education and psychology.
Training in mindfulness has the potential to enhance children’s attention and focus, and improve memory, self-acceptance, self-management skills, and self-understanding.
Research shows that mindfulness enhances learning and attention. Many educational institutions, including UCLA, Stanford, UCSD, PENN, and UCSF are embracing mindfulness as an educational intervention by introducing it into their curricula and conducting research within the field.
This informational meeting will provide educators and specialists working with children the current research and uses of mindfulness in education. Anyone interested in this topic is welcomed.
Nan Karsh currently teaches mindfulness to dementia caregivers. She is committed to bringing mindful awareness and resilience skills to parents, teachers and children in Colorado Springs. Nan completed the Mindful Schools Curriculum Training in 2013.
