The Foundation introduces to schools an integrated program of mindfulness practice as a method of reducing stress, building mental immunity and regulating emotions in children and adults. We initiate the development of mindfulness practice in areas with a high potential for stress and burnout.
Mindfulness is the awareness training of the mind. It develops the ability to fully focus on what is happening here and now, without judging. Even a few minutes of daily practice will positively affect health, mental balance and relationships with others. Mindfulness training brings relaxation – a side effect of practicing awareness exercises rather than an end in itself.
The Foundation promotes mindfulness training as a method that positively influences physical and mental health. Our particular interest lies in the area of education since the potential for experiencing stress and burnout among educators is high.
