“These days, everyone is buzzing about the need to integrate mindfulness and social and emotional learning into schools. Well, here is a program that has been doing it successfully for almost 20 years. I am astounded by this beautiful curriculum. Linda and her colleagues have created a brilliantly practical guide for teachers, one that understands kids – both how they think, and their imaginative capacities. …This is a model for the classroom of the future.” –Jeff Warren, Mindfulness Teacher and co-author with Dan Harris of Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics.
