About This Site

Stacks Image 88
I created this site to help anyone interested in developing school-based mindfulness programs on a budget. As a therapist and professor of family therapy, I had been teaching mindfulness for nearly two decades and wanted my children to learn how to meditate. Obviously, meditating with their friends would be more fun than with their mother at home. So, I volunteered at their school to create a program as my parent contribution. It was more successful than I ever imagined. Kids really get it, and make amazing changes in their lives. I created this website as part of a research project as the Research Fellow for the Michael D. Eisner College of Education at California State University, Northridge for 2017-2018 to enable interested parents and schools to affordably create effective mindfulness programs in their schools.
