About Mindfulness

"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.
