Why does Mindfulness Belong in Schools?
In 2013, Google decided to test its hiring hypothesis by crunching every bit and byte of hiring, firing and promotion data accumulated since the company’s incorporation in 1998. Project Oxygen shocked everyone by concluding that, among the eight most important qualities of Google’s top employees, STEM expertise comes in dead last. The top seven characteristics of success at Google are soft skills: being a good coach, communicating and listening well, possessing insights into others (including others different values and points of view), having empathy toward and being supportive of one’s colleagues, being a good critical thinker and problem solver, and being able to make connections across complex ideas.

Mindfulness for Educators
We ask an awful lot of teachers these days...Beyond just conveying the course material, teachers are expected to provide a nurturing learning environment, be responsive to students, parents and colleagues, juggle the demands of standardized testing, coach students through conflicts with peers, be exemplars of emotion regulation, handle disruptive behavior and generally be great role models.
Recent studies have found out that school children taught the technique show:
24% increase in positive social behaviors
24% decrease in aggression
15% improvement in math scores
Reduction and prevention of depression-like symptoms
Improved classroom behavior
