Tara Hornich-Lisciandro attended last year's Mindfulness & Education Conference and is now using the tools she learned here in her classroom. "Several years ago I noticed my students were anxious about taking Advanced Placement exams. It was easy to see that some students were so worried, they were not eating properly or getting enough sleep. Having suffered from years of anxiety and having learned the activities that accompany mindfulness, I began to utilize mindful techniques in my classes. Within just a few weeks my students were asking for mindfulness activities almost daily,"
This year's Mindfulness & Education conference (August 16-18) will be open for registration by March 1.
