The story so far

The vision for Living Mindfully in Education to establish mindfulness as an accessible, sustainable, and integral part of education is successfully unfolding.

Since 2014 Living Mindfully has worked to create long term, sustainable mindfulness programmes, within schools, colleges, and universities that benefit staff, students, and the learning environment as a whole.

Within County Durham we have delivered a successful project commissioned by Public Health working with 21 schools, 45 teachers, and 300 students. The project has included teacher training, and classroom-based programmes allowing schools to witness the positive impact mindfulness can have both individually and collectively.

In 2016 Hartlepool Borough Council commissioned LME programmes, the project involves training 24 teachers, and working with 12 primary and secondary schools.

We are pleased to be working closely with schools both independently and within countywide initiatives to bring mindfulness to educational settings throughout the United Kingdom.
