“The function of education is to help you from childhood not to imitate anybody, but be yourself all the time.”

1. Start with focusing on the breath.
Mindful awareness is a concept that children don’t get very easily, and to be honest, I think most of us adults have issues with it too. The more kids can experience breathing awareness the better off they will be handling stress. I like to start by saying,

Wherever you are in your meditation practice and whether your desired outcome is finding clarity in your life, coping with stress/anxiety, emotional healing, or taking your life to the next level, you will awaken your inner healer and begin a powerful transformation.
The Meditation Healing Immersion begins on Friday evening (May 10) with a book signing and discussion with Davidji, author of Secrets of Meditation.
On Saturday (May 11), it will be a full day of intention setting, present moment calming techniques, mindfulness training, and reinforcement of your meditation practice through various types of meditation and yoga. We will also explore the key principles of Ayurveda – the power of our emotional digestive fire – and how to make more conscious choices in our relationships and our daily interactions.
I love this type of workshop because we have a full day to really explore and practice a variety of meditation and mindfulness techniques. We’re able to jump right in and dive deep, stepping out of our ordinary weekend patterns and distractions – breaking away from those usual story-lines. We’re able to let go and tap into a deeper connection to ourselves, our community, and expand our awareness – so when we leave we’re able to integrate what we’ve learned to our everyday lives.
If this sounds like something you’ll find value in, we would be honored to spend the weekend with you. $135 (includes signed copy of book). To register, click HERE or call, 781-407-9642.
Workshop takes place at:

We need to give greater emphasis on teaching our kids social emotional skills that can help reduce stress, strengthen attention, and increase our capacity to effectively manage our days.
When students learn to develop their own self-awareness, they learn to become less reactive in class. This changes their behavior and they realize they have more choices. When the students become more aware of their behavior – they’re able to shift their behavior – and the whole classroom environment changes. Mindfulness has the potential to change the entire schools culture.
A great opportunity to learn more and explore how mindfulness is being taught in public schools. We’re in our third year teaching mindfulness-based education in the public schools in Milton, MA.
Anyone interested in bringing mindfulness to schools would enjoy Andy’s Breakfast Roundtable on Friday, April 19th, from 7:00-8:00 AM. We will discuss how the program started, what’s involved in the classes, the general issues that arise when you attempt to bring mindfulness in schools – and how you can integrate this into the classroom without dismantling the system that’s already in place.
Here’s what Saki F. Santorelli, EdD, MA, Executive Director, Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care and Society, says about this event : “It is a unique conference because it holds strongly to the science and to the scientific process of investigating mindfulness, MBSR, and a whole range of what we call MBI’s, or ‘Mindfulness Based Interventions’, while also seamlessly integrating meditation practice throughout the entire program for five days.”
