Note (3/3/2020): When I first started this website back in 2012, I hoped to spread awareness of the benefits of mindfulness for adults and kids. Eight years later, there are so many more resources, and so much misinformation, that I'm taking some time to contemplate the most skillful way to revise the content I'd originally published on this page.

In the meantime, here are some posts you might find useful.
