2:45-4:00 Mindfulness Primer - Online Mindfulness for the Whole School

In response to the need for high-quality mindfulness programs in
schools, and the low time commitment available to teachers, the Center for Mindful Learning (CML) developed an interactive online mindfulness program. This web-based program allows educational professionals to guide a meaningful mindfulness practice with little training. The online mindfulness program teaches age-appropriate techniques that help students develop positive relationships with peers and adults, increase resilience to stress, improve academic performance, and make
healthy choices for themselves and their communities. School faculty and staff also learn techniques to manage stress, increase job satisfaction, communicate effectively, and cultivate positive working relationships.
