As I start this blog my focus remains intent on bringing the positive effects of Mindfulness to schools and those that work in them. Although Mindfulness is becoming more mainstream there is still a fringe element to it that is often linked to the new age mysticism that often follows the word meditation (the proverbial OHMMM). De-mystification is best combated with science and fact. Studies are popping up like mushrooms after a spring storm, that support the neurological basis for this practice. This blog will not only focus on these, but celebrate them as a manner of practical evolution of how we view ourselves, those around us and education as a system.
