This website will hopefully go a little way to answer some of the questions you may have about Mindfulness, how it can be used and who may benefit from the practice of Mindfulness.

Many more questions may arise and if so why not ask us?

Mindfulness:Possibilities in Education

This experential and interactive taster session explores what mindfulness is, what possibilities it offers and how it is being introduced to adults and young people in education.

A taster session for staff is a good way to start bringing mindfulness into your life and school.

taster


An effective taster should dispel myths about mindfulness, offer an opportunity to try out some practices, explain the evidence for its benefits and set out what an 8-week course entails

The aim of the taster is to explore:

• What is Mindfulness?
• Possibilities for supporting staff
• Possibilities for supporting pupils
• How to train in Mindfulness

It will help you and/or your team decide whether they’d like to take an 8-week course as this requires a commitment of time and energy.

What is Mindfulness

Mindfulness is all about learning to direct our attention to our experience as it unforlds, moment by moment, with open-minded curiosity, kindness and acceptance. Rather than worrying about what has happened or might happen, it trains us to explore and respond skilfully to whatever is happening right now.

Possibilities for Staff

In adults, mindfulness training has been shown to improve health and wellbeing. People report after taking a mindfulness course that they have found they can learn more effectively, think more clearly, peform better and feel calmer and less anxious. GPs are referring adults on 8 week courses to reduce stress & help prevent recuuent depression. It is increasingly being used in business, education and sports training to improve staff welbeing and satisfaction and improve performance.

Possibilities for pupils

Mindfulness interventions for pupils have shown the potential to improve attention, social skills, academic engagement, and psychological health. At the same time more rigorous research is needed and is now underway. See Felver et al (2015) to find out more.
