    Meena, I particularly appreciate your emphasis on learning the culture of the community you’re working in, and possibly co-facilitating with someone from that community. I taught immigrants and international students for many years (EFL/ESOL). As I’ve shifted into the mindfulness field, I’ve been surprised a few times by the lack of cross-cultural awareness of some (very well-intentioned) teachers.

    I see this in kids that come to school upset and use mindful breathing and calming techniques. My hope is that they will be able to recognize the need for these techniques at any time or any point in their lives.
