Living Mindfully in Education Programme (LME)

Living Mindfully In Education (LME) delivers mindfulness courses to youngsters in an enjoyable, practical and inspiring way.

LME is designed to engage and encourage primary, secondary, college and university students, in mainstream or specialist settings. The programmes are aimed at developing an interest and understanding into the workings of both mind and body. Students will explore how they relate to themselves and the world around them, and how they can make choices about how to respond to life. We hope mindfulness will become a natural way of living and will benefit students over the long term by developing greater awareness and attention when viewing themselves and others, their lives and their choices.

Developed from our years of experience LME is offered at foundation level and includes a practical introduction to mindfulness theory as well as a full repertoire of mindfulness meditation practices. Additional short courses can be offered to develop practice and encourage deeper learning and understanding throughout education.

As a recognised training centre, we are inviting schools, colleges, and universities, to consider a long-term training approach for the delivery of mindfulness within their educational setting. The training pathway for selected staff members is initially one academic year, and can be an immensely fulfilling experience for those involved, not only in supporting their own daily lives but also in an ability to support and share these skills with others. It is, therefore, important that people participating are committed to developing a personal mindfulness practice, and are in a position to teach students the LME programme over the long-term. The training begins with the completion of an 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programme followed by 6 months personal mindfulness practice before completing the LME teacher training programme.
