Resources supporting “Why Mindfulness in Education”

Additional Outside Resources supporting “Why Mindfulness in Education”

This resource list supports information presented on my page “Why Mindfulness in Education?” while I begin to establish Mindfulness programs throughout San Luis Obispo County and Northern Santa Barbara County.  I want to keep a list of important, informational articles and resources for myself as well as to share with others, all in one place. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you are interested in piloting a program in your classroom, school and/or district, or other youth/family related programs.

I will continue to add to this list over time so be sure to check back!
