Resources supporting “Why Mindfulness/SEL in Education” and/or “Why I Teach Mindfulness”
“When we look at low performing schools it’s not that these children are unable to learn, it’s that very often they are unavailable to learn.”—Jean-Gabrielle Larochette, elementary school teacher
While I begin to establish Mindfulness and Social Emotional Learning (SEL) programs throughout San Luis Obispo County, I am compiling a list of important, informational articles and video resources for myself, as well as to share with others, all in one place, right here on this page. There are so many reasons why mindfulness is needed in our schools and communities. Let’s do this! Contact me, Dee DiGioia, for help getting programs in your schools (during or after school) in san Luis Obispo County!
MK YOU offers mindfulness programs for youth, educators, parents, and community members using evidence-based practices to help reduce stress while cultivating the inner resources needed for well-being in San Luis Obispo & Northern Santa Barbara Counties. While taking action to get programs in our local schools, MK YOU is also creating community programs including “Dragonfly Circles” in Arroyo Grande and currently seeking new locations for additional age groups. Contact Dee to learn more, or if you can host programs at your location, or want to join a master mind group to get programs in your school or organization.
