“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”

Mindful Schools and .b [dot-be] Programs
are the names for the range of courses created by the Mindful School Organization and the Mindfulness in Schools Project. Both non-profit organisations whose aim is to encourage, support and research the teaching of secular mindfulness in schools. Based on the core mindfulness principles of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), these courses offer customised content and learning through roles in the school community — as teachers, staff, parents, and students.



Mindfulness Self Compassion has been the most recent scientific development in terms of mind trainings. In societies that encourage to constantly compete with each other, our sense of self-worth rises and falls according to our latest success or failure with almost no control from our side. Research have found that developing kindness and compassion for ourselves and others builds our confidence, helps us create meaningful, caring relationship and promotes physical and mental health.   Far from fostering emotional weakness, we now know that our brains are also hardwired to respond to kindness and compassion and we can therefore heal destructive emotional patterns. There it is, the alternative to a destructive self-esteem, a better and more effective path to happiness: self-compassion.
