Wake Up Schools – mindfulness in education

Wake Up Schools supports educators to bring the practices of mindfulness and applied ethics into their own lives so they may be happy and free, and so they may in turn share these practices with colleagues and students in their school communities. With mindfulness teachers and students can experience more peace, learn how to take care of difficult emotions and create conditions for a happy school and a happy world.

I think it is the good teachers who will be able to change the world. That’s my belief, because a teacher can nourish, can heal, can build healthy, happy human beings.

Thich Nhat Hanh

Wake Up Schools is a world-wide movement believing in the transformative power of mindfulness, especially in learning environments. It includes a global network of dedicated practitioners who are committed to establishing a steady personal practice (breath, walking, movement, body scan, eating, and more). In a spirit of service, educators explore how to integrate core practices into their educational setting with children, teenagers , young adults and all members of their school communities.
