Mindfulness in the Midcoast

Mindfulness to quiet busy brains at West Bath School



While my work so far has kept me within the Portland city limits, I was thrilled to see coverage of mindfulness at West Bath Middle School making local headlines. It's one thing to see it national, and another to see it right in our backyard!  

...the anecdotal evidence of the practice’s effect on behavior is clear, and perhaps just as important. “Office referrals, behavior issues, all those things are reduced, because this kind of work allows them to look at themselves, gives them the opportunity to assess why they are behaving the way that they are, which means less time out of the classroom.”

There's even a little shout out to wise minds. big hearts. at the bottom!
