Mindfulness in Schools

Welcome to Mindfulness in Schools Project at the Sanctuary – bringing Mindfulness into your classroom!


 

Short Description: Train to teach either .b for 11-18year olds or Paws b for 7-11year olds with us here at the Sanctuary this summer!

Course description: The Sanctuary is delighted to have been working in partnership with the UK based MiSP (Mindfulness in Schools Project) over the past number of years, running training courses that enable school staff and others working in youth-based fields to teach the .b classroom-based mindfulness programme for 11-18 year olds and the Paws b curriculum for 7-11 year-olds.

Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) is a not-for-profit charity for young people and schools. Their aim is to improve the lives of a generation of children and young people by making a genuine, positive difference to their mental health and wellbeing, enabling them not ‘just get by’ but to positively flourish.

What is .b?

.b is a 10 session course for young people
aged 11-18, delivered in the classroom or in small groups within other
youth-related settings.

.b has primarily been designed for use in
the classroom with what we would call ‘conscript’ audiences of 11-18 year olds,
although it can also be used equally effectively in other settings.

At the most simple level .b is an awareness-raising exercise to give all students a taste of mindfulness so that they know about it and can return to it later in life if they think it might help. However, for many pupils the course can relatively quickly lead to very positive outcomes: they feel calmer and more fulfilled; they can concentrate better; they have a toolkit to deal with stress and anxiety.
