Mindfulness Based Wellbeing
MindWell supports school communities with integrating mindfulness
training and social and emotional learning into the curriculum and daily life in order to cultivate sound mind, body, and heart.
Since 2012, we have helped schools develop a more mindful culture – one that engages the heart as well as the head, in a holistic approach to wellbeing in teaching and learning.
We live in an age where busy-ness and being switched on 24/7 are the norm but also in an age where depression is set to become the most common disease worldwide and where concerns about the mental health of young people are endemic. In order to be successful and resilient in this age of distraction, we need to cultivate attention, self-awareness and emotional regulation.
Understanding how our mind, body and emotions work
is a crucial 21st century life skill. MindWell aims to support and empower schools in bringing greater attention to the value and benefits of the affective aspects of learning
in their school communities.
