Mindfulness-based SEL, Conflict Resolution and Social Justice for PreK-8 The Peace of Mind program works beautifully as a complement to yoga programs for children and youth. Peace of Mind includes 32 weekly, easy to follow 30-45 minute mindfulness-based lessons for PreK to Middle School. Each lesson begins with a mindfulness practice co-led by a student and builds to include brain science, kindness and compassion, mindfulness-based conflict resolution, and applications to social justice. Peace of Mind is evidence-based, teacher-created, and used nationwide in public, public charter and independent schools, after-school programs and homeschooling classrooms. Peace of Mind is by educators, for educators: we are here for you ! We offer a series of online short courses to help you get started with the Peace of Mind Program, as well as virtual (and eventually in-person!) beginning of year PD sessions for educators. The Peace of Mind community gathers to learn, share and connect at our Annual Conference in January and twice-yearly Community of Practice gatherings - open to all and free this year. Our curriculum series is written with ample educator guidance included, and we are always available for one to one conversations as you implement the Program. Peace of Mind is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in Washington DC. Any questions? We'd love to talk to you!
