The rising implementation of Mindfulness in education across Europe and America, is showing increasingly beneficial results for students, teachers and the institutions overall.
Studies have shown the impact of Mindfulness on concentration, memory, emotion regulation and social interaction, and its encouraging implications for education. Due to social stress, instant access to information and increasing stimulation from technology, children are showing lower levels of attention and positive social interactions, and higher hyperactivity, drug use and body image issues.

Mindfulness cultivates & nurtures our children's minds

A large emphasis is put on the physical body (diet, exercise, clothes) but often neglects the vulnerabilities ours, and particularly our children´s minds, need addressing. Mindfulness training in attention and awareness provides children with a personal toolbox of skills, which they continue to use throughout life building resilience, autonomy and a healthy awareness of their body and thoughts.

Studies done on schools where Mindfulness programmes have been implemented have shown the students to have:

  • Greater resilience and autonomy
  • Increased attention, memory & focus
  • More empathy and compassion with each other and their teachers
  • Better coping at exam time
  • Better emotion regulation
  • Increased calm and compassion
  • Better overall health & immunity
  • LESS stress, impulsivity, anger and anxiety

Teachers trained in mindfulness also show lower blood pressure, less negative emotion and symptoms of depression, and greater compassion and empathy.

The BBB (Break.Breathe.Begin) Mindfulness Method teaches children to understand Mindfulness and how to use it daily, leading to better attention, learning and memory. It induces a greater sense of resilience, autonomy and calm, decreasing the likelihood of peer pressure, stress or addiction.

Training programs can be tailored to your particular needs. For example:
