Here are a variety of useful activities and resources for  practicing and teaching:
  • mindfulness and meditation, 
  • kindness and compassion, 
  • generosity and gratitude, 
  • social responsibility, and 
  • social-emotional skills.


I've gotten a lot of requests to use the activities in various contexts, and I've found some of this content copied onto other sites without permission.  Please link to these resources; please do not copy them to your own site.  (See the FAQs for more information.)
