Mindfulness for Children at Evergreen
Every day, our Primary students participate in a mindfulness program called Inner-Explorer.
"Children are uniquely suited to benefit from mindfulness practice. Habits formed early in life will inform behaviors in adulthood, and with mindfulness, we have the opportunity to give our children the habit of being peaceful, kind and accepting."
"Inner Explorer is an online mindfulness platform designed to support mental health and well-being through Mindfulness-Based Social Emotional Learning (MBSEL)...
Through daily practice with Inner Explorer, school communities learn how to cultivate critical social emotional skills, such as self-awareness, self-regulation, empathy, and resilience. These skills work to address chronic stress, trauma, and adversity, while also fostering compassionate and equitable learning environments."
