These days, everyone is buzzing about the need to integrate mindfulness and social and emotional learning into schools. Here is a program that has been doing it successfully for almost 20 years…. This is a model for the classroom of the future.

I started using the curriculum and it’s wonderful! The lessons are easy to follow and very well thought out. The curriculum fits well with the Mindful Schools training that I did a few years ago. I’m very pleased with my purchase.

You have done such an outstanding job and this is such a comprehensive curriculum. I am implementing your program …and strongly encouraging my colleagues in our district to do so also.
