    Hello! I am Natalia from Colombia. I hope to bring mindfulness into my life and my classroom. The four constituents of well-being (awareness, connection, insight and purpose) have helped me understand the foundations of mindfulness. I am very excited and thankful for this opportunity to grow and improve my life, and hopefully, the life of those around me.

    Just Fantastic!! Thanks to your presentation, I now understand how positive and negative seeds work in the neuro-physiological sense to create our mind and body state. Thank you, Dr. Davidson, for your dedicated years of research that will change the world and the way that we think about suffering, depression and well-being. Thank you!

    Hello, all.
    I teach at a university in Vermont. I struggle to make time to care for myself when my entire life is absorbed in caring for my students (and colleagues). I find myself exhausted, overwhelmed, and unwell, and therefore less effective in my work. I intend not only to become more informed, but also to practice mindfulness. I’m hoping for nothing less than transformation.

    I am joining from Washington State. I am a principal of an alternative learning school who is striving to have a site wide implementation of mindfulness learning based on Mindful Schools – Mindful Educators teaching certification yearlong program and am also an outside provider in my district providing limited mindfulness to teachers and students at other sites on a limited basis at this point!

    I am looking forward to continuing my practice and being able to add more depth to my ability to adapt and embody the practices regardless of the age, size, and level of personal practice of any group I am working along side!

    Hello to everybody, thank you to the team !!! –
    what a wonderful idea to connect and to share the vision of a mindful and heartfelt world and to support the introduction of mindfulness into schools – anyone here from Germany? Let’s connect. Maybe with facebook – Bildung und Achtsamkeit – we created a space there.
