Schools

Sierra Mindfulness provides administrators, educators, staff and students with sustainable mindfulness programs that support healthy and happy school environments.

Mindfulness practices develop self-awareness, self-regulating skills, compassion and kindness to facilitate living life to the fullest.

With principles founded on the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction program created by Jon-Kabat Zinn, we can use mindfulness to help schools create a conducive environment for:

With stress levels among children climbing and large numbers of children contending with significant social, emotional, and mental health barriers to their success in school and life, mindfulness is becoming an essential component of education in our schools.

“Mindfulness occurred after lunch in my 3rd grade class. It was the perfect time to have the students learn how to pause, reflect, and use their minds and bodies… Mindfulness with children is NOT an easy task, but its effects are within their reach. They can take the ability to be mindful wherever they go, using these coping strategies both inside and outside the classroom. We all need to learn how to just be!”

~3rd grade teacher
