.breathe is a 4-session course aimed at introducing mindfulness with 9-14 year olds as a way of enhancing well-being.
About the Course
At a time when students are facing or moving through ‘school transition’, this short course offers an opportunity for students to ‘dip their toes in mindfulness’, exploring the ways in which this might support them through the highs and lows of adolescent life.
The course was developed by Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) as part of a large scale research project in the UK called ‘Healthy Minds’ Bounce Forward. The overall conclusions of this study were very positive, with statistically significant improvements across a full range of Health-Related Quality of Life, behavioural and emotional well-being measures.
