Mindful Learning for Parents, Teachers & Students


Join Dr. Paul Epstein and learn how you or your student can move from the 3 Rs of education—reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithmetic—to the 3 Rs of mindful education: reflection, relationship, and resilience. A recent American Psychological Association survey concluded that stress is an epidemic for children and families. The cover of a recent "Westport Magazine" states that 1 in 4 teens is suffering from anxiety.

For students, stress impairs attention, mood, sleep, and learning readiness. For teachers, stress can decrease productivity and creativity and increase frustration and anxiety. For parents, stress can lead to a parenting style that looks more like a to-do list than an engaged, empathetic, and present relationship with their children. The benefits of a practice of mindfulness—by all of the aforementioned—include improved attention and focus, self-control, resilience and adaptability, and compassion. Even a little training in mindfulness can lead to a big payoff in the classroom and beyond.  

The latest in brain science and neuroplasticity is leading the way to training and changing the brain with mindfulness for enhanced learning and health.
