Welcome to Mindfulness Education 4 Life™
Mindfulness Education 4 Life™ (ME4L™), founded in 2012, is an organization that develops and promotes the application of research-based skills and practices to help children, youth, and adults live a more mindful life.
Our mission is to bridge neuroscience and mindfulness skills to cultivate a peaceful and response-able society.
We create materials, facilitate trainings, support mindfulness education programs, and partner with advocates of health and well being for children, youth, and families.
"Mindfulness is open-hearted, nonjudgmental, moment-to-moment awareness." –Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness practices foster emotional balance and a sense of well-being – we become more peaceful.
Mindfulness expands our capacity to pay attention and increases our ability to self-regulate our emotions – we become more response-able.
When children and teens practice mindfulness skills, they build a foundation for social-emotional intelligence and enhance academic success.

Calming Ourselves in Stressful Moments™ is the first in a series of Mindfulness Education 4 Life™ programs.
This playful, creative, and easy-to-use program helps children, ages 3-8, develop the mindfulness skills to manage stress. It also helps adults manage their own stress as they use The Calming Skill™ to guide children in calming themselves.
Calming Ourselves in Stressful Moments™ program materials:
- The Stress-Reducing Booklet—includes The Calming Skill™
- Calming Cards—a set of beautifully illustrated, creative lessons
- Trainer's Guide—with downloadable PowerPoint slides and handouts
The Calming Ourselves in Stressful Moments™ program has been successfully implemented by hundreds of parents, childcare providers, teachers, social service professionals, and health-care providers.
The Third Edition of Calming Ourselves in Stressful Moments™ materials and presentations are under development and will be available through Mindfulness Education 4 Life™. Learn more about the Calming Program.
