    Wauv – I loved it. I am working to bring mindfulness into the Danish schools and recognize the resistance in some teachers that you mentioned in the beginning of this interview. I love how you go about it in trying to analyze where they already use what we know of as mindfulness and then start there. Thank you for great inspiration. Would love to hear you teach more. Please come to Europe 🙂

    This was my very favorite session of the summit. Susan, you are extremely knowledgable and well-spoken in a way that is easy to understand. I loved the techniques and that you provided for young kids and older kids. You also really understand the mindset of teachers and how to produce buy in. World centered… hope. Perfect!
    Keleigh, thank you for your extremely good listening/analyzing skills. I’ve thought so for many of the interviews you’ve hosted. You’re able to listen for long stretches, reframe/repeat main points and ask really great follow-up questions.
    I have owned Susan’s book for 2 years and this has encouraged me to pick it back up and refresh my memory on some of the games. I love the cards- recently saw those at a friend’s house. Thank you ladies!

    Do you discuss focused vs. diffused thinking and the role of each? Thanks.
