Why Support Peace of Mind?
Trust me, if every school had Peace of Mind class, the world would be a more peaceful place.
– Molly, 5th grader
Peace of Mind Inc. is a small but mighty educational nonprofit based in Washington DC dedicated to encouraging and supporting mindfulness-based social emotional learning, conflict resolution and social justice teaching in our schools. Our extensively classroom-tested resources equip educators to meet the needs of students in early childhood through Grade 8. Peace of Mind skills support children’s social and emotional well-being and foster their development into peaceful, effective change-makers. Peace of Mind Overview

Tending to our students’ social and emotional needs has never been more important.

I am astounded by this beautiful curriculum… 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.
