BRING MINDFULNESS
TO YOUR SCHOOL

We believe in the transformative power of mindfulness to create resilient and harmonious learning environments. Our programs are designed to uplift and support both educators and youth on their journey toward emotional wellbeing and success. We aim to co-create a space where challenges are met with mindfulness, fostering a sense of calm amidst the chaos. For educators, we provide tools to navigate the demands of the day with mindfulness, promoting their own wellbeing in turn. For students, our program empowers them to manage their emotions, paving the way for a more successful and joyful academic experience.

Mindfulness For Students

We empower youth by cultivating awareness, resiliency, inspiration, strength, and empathy through engaging activities, practical exercises, and a supportive community. Participants learn essential life skills based on the five core competencies of Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) and gain a deeper understanding of themselves while enhancing their emotional well-being. 

Our youth program stands out for its holistic approach to mindfulness education. Mindfulness is an intentional connection with the present moment that has the power to change how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world. Our program goes beyond just teaching techniques; it creates a dedicated mindfulness practice that cultivates compassion and encourages participants to treat themselves and one another with greater kindness. Each session, we offer a variety of engaging activities, including mindfulness meditation practices, mindful movement, and community dialogue, that promote self-reflection and positive engagement with peers.

What sets our youth program apart is its relational approach, developing an ongoing mindfulness practice that cultivates compassion and encourages kindness towards oneself and others. Through accessible and inclusive mindfulness education, our sessions aim to empower youth with skills that extend beyond the program's duration, enabling them to lead more fulfilling lives and positively impact their communities.

Mindfulness For Teachers

Teachers are being asked to meet the increasing challenges in schools and communities — rising stress, emotional instability, attention deficit, and more. Copper Beech works with schools to develop administrators, teachers, parents, and students who are happier, more focused, emotionally-regulated, and less affected by stress. Evidence from thousands of schools now shows how a culture of mindfulness is directly correlated to raising test scores, fewer outbursts and incidents, and a more connected, supportive community.

Our facilitators will share cutting-edge neuroscience and guide you in exploring how mindfulness and its many approaches to practice can transform stress and conflicts into opportunities for connection, creativity, and deeper wellbeing. Work and school do not need to be disheartening and burdensome; they can be uplifting and gratifying as we join our colleagues and community members in cultivating common purpose.

These workshops and sessions include teaching, guided exercises, conversation, storytelling, and laughter, as well as clear, simple skills and practices that can be applied right away.
