Mindfulness: A Guide for Teachers
by Dr. Amy Saltzman

Provides a working definition of mindfulness, an overview of the scientific rationale for offering mindfulness to children and adolescents, a review of the professional and personal benefits of practicing mindfulness, specific suggestions for developing your own mindfulness practice (which is a prerequisite to sharing mindfulness with your students), and two examples of practices you can use in your classroom.



The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society does not run programs specifically tailored to the needs of early childhood and K-12 educators, and so we have compiled these links to guide you to some organizations which do specialize in this area.
