Mindfulness in Education: Insights, Stories & Outcomes
What programs may forget and what we need to remember

Mindfulness with children, if well adapted into education, gives us a unique opportunity (or - profound pathway) to cultivate children’s attention, self-awareness, emotional management, wellbeing and self-efficacy. Understanding these dimensions is crucial to any mindfulness in education program.
In this keynote presentation, Nimrod will introduce us to innovative models of mindfulness in education around the world, and to insights gained from his own initiative, which has started 20 years ago, and seems to be among the first long-term whole-school implementations in the world.
The presentation will focus on four main themes:

Drawing on applied science, anecdotes, children’s feedbacks, observations and qualitative and quantitative outcomes, the talk will guide us to the inner world of children: their deeper needs, the way they perceive mindfulness, why they appreciate it, how they remember it, and the life applications they do with it.
Nimrod will summarize the lessons he has gathered locally and globally, and the practical perspectives, strategies and skills that we need in order to integrate mindfulness into education in a successful and rewarding way.
