Morning/Afternoon Mindfulness Workshops for Students
Our Morning and Afternoon Mindfulness Workshops, teach students HOW to pay attention. The program brings dramatic improvements in concentration, attention and unity among students.
After years of extensive research, we know that learning to be mindful can:
• Increase Attention Span
• Improve Impulse control
• Reduces stress
• Build community and Empathy
We use a combination of techniques used in mindfulness meditation trainings. Every class starts with a game or activity and ends with an introspective meditative period, focusing on the present moment and breath awareness. In the middle is the teaching objective – for example, how to use mindfulness in the following ways: to calm down, to focus, to help you go to sleep, to see yourself more clearly, or to help you in conflict resolution.
The Boston Buddha also conducts training and workshops for parents, public and private school educators, therapists and aides in educational environments.
Instructor Andy Kelley is an ordinary dad who shares witty and relatable stories to both teachers and students alike about the benefits of meditation. These benefits even go beyond the classroom. According to a study of the mental health of teenagers by Kaiser Permanente, meditation has helped successfully treat depression, anorexia and bulimia and various mood disorders.
We will come to your school and create a program for your Students, Educators and Faculty. CONTACT us for more information.
“Thank you so much for the wonderful work you did with our children. We were so lucky to have people like you who were willing to offer their time and effort to introduce our kids to one of the most important things in life: How to live mindfully.”

“Thank YOU so much for sharing this information with our children. I admit that Dieter wasn’t thrilled about the class when I first signed him up but by the end he was reminding me ‘It’s Monday, I have that class today’ and he cheerfully walked himself up to the library… Once he got angry at home (frustrated with homework or something) and he suddenly got really quiet. When I asked him what he was doing he said, ‘Mom, I’m breathing’. So I guess it’s getting through. Have a great summer and please let us know if any other classes come up, for kids or adults! Thanks again.”
Judy, mother of Fifth Grade student
