From Doing Well to Being Well: Embedding Mindfulness Practices in Education

26 January 2019

Abstract

The myriad of benefits from the ancient practices of mindfulness have received growing recognition in the West over the last 20 years. Research in the areas of neuroscience, psychology, healthcare and education have all found positive results after training in mindfulness techniques. The first stage of this research will compare teachers self-reported levels of mindfulness to self-reported levels of well-being. The second stage of this research will be a case study exploring teachers’ perceptions of mindfulness practices in the classroom. The final stage of this research will explore the potential benefit of including content on mindfulness in teacher preparation programs, as a method of incorporating such practices in schools.
