Video Playlist: The Benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation for Kids

posted by Catharine Hannay

Here are several brief (5-15 minute) videos about school-based mindfulness and meditation programs and kids' perspectives on the benefits of mindfulness.

Please keep in mind that there are many factors that contribute to an effective mindfulness program, including:
  • trained instructors with their own long-term mindfulness practice; 
  • a trauma-informed, culturally-sensitive approach; and
  • support from administrators, classroom teachers, and parents.
