Research shows mindfulness can help us cope with stress and anxiety, feelings that many of us, including adolescents, are struggling with since the pandemic. We discuss how school- based mindfulness programs can get kids started, and options to further develop the practice. And we describe ways to ensure the practice of mindfulness doesn’t reinforce patterns of exclusion.
Guests:
Sarah Manion, Chief Program Officer for Calmer Choice.  
Paul Niles, recently retired Executive Director of the Cape Cod Lighthouse Charter School
Zac Ispa-Landa, teacher of ecology and environmental justice at the University of Vermont, and leader of mindfulness retreats and mindfulness teacher trainings with Inward Bound Mindfulness Education.
Mindy Todd hosts.
