The Still Mind offers practical, evidence-based training to schools, providing a range of positive outcomes for teachers and students.
For teachers - the development of mindful awareness has been proven to reduce stress, alleviate burnout, cultivate emotional resilience and self-compassion. Our 8 week course is accepted as RPL for the highly acclaimed ’Mindful Educators Essentials Online Program’, giving teachers a structured mindfulness curriculum for K - 12. We can support teachers with this online program, facilitating the required role plays and discussions in a 6 week group course.
For students - the development of greater focus, attention, social-emotional skills and confidence.
Results from an 8 week MBSR course showed participants experienced numerous long-term benefits both inside and outside the classroom. We offer teacher workshops and a range of 4 to 8 week courses.
We teach students the Mindful Schools K - 12 Curriculum, an evidence-based program used by thousands of educators worldwide. The programs use developmentally appropriate language and teach skills to navigate a range of challenges including:
improving concentration and focus in class and in sport
skills to work with difficult emotions and moods
techniques to manage stress and anxiety and the pressure of exams
methods to navigate the pressures of adolescence
increased optimism and the confidence to pursue their own goals
