Mindfulness in Education:
Laying the Foundation for Teaching and Learning

The Association for Mindfulness in Education is a collaborative association of organizations and individuals working together to provide support for mindfulness training as a component of K-12 education.

Research over the past few decades has found that
mindfulness training develops:


- attention and concentration,

- social-emotional awareness,
- body awareness and coordination,
- interpersonal skills.


As such, mindfulness is a foundation for education; mindfulness provides the optimal conditions for learning and teaching and also supports all pedagogical approaches.
