Mindfulness is a way of training the mind to be present. It is a secular meditative practice, which involves paying attention to what is happening as it happens. As such, cultivating mindfulness results in greater self-awareness, and enables us to become more joyful, more empathic, and more resilient.
In recent years the interest in mindfulness among the scientific community has grown exponentially, with leading researchers at institutions around the world - including Oxford, Cambridge, UCLA, Stanford, and Harvard - investigating the effects of mindfulness training.
Youth Mindfulness is a social enterprise devoted to developing and delivering mindfulness programmes for children, adolescents and young adults. We believe that all young people have within themselves the capacity to be aware, kind, resilient and courageous, and that with the practice of mindfulness these strengths can be awakened and cultivated. Our team has over 40 years’ experience in practising mindfulness.
We’ve taught mindfulness to 1,000s of children and young people as well as 1,000s of adults. Drawing on various mindfulness traditions as well as the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, we seek to develop programmes that make a genuine difference in the lives of young people by adopting an approach that aims to be both fun and exciting, as well as meaningful and transformative.
