“You have to give kids a way to shift gears of their brain and nervous system, you have to give them tools to actually allow them to work directly with states of stress, and until you do, you can’t really blame them for not paying attention,” Chris McKenna, Mindful Schools, US. 

Dr Siobhan Hugh-Jones welcomes you to the University of Leeds Mindfulness in Schools Knowledge Hub.

In these pages you will find:

  • links to presentations delivered at the Mindfulness: how it can help to improve emotional wellbeing in Leeds school event, hosted by the University on 17 January 2014
  • Resources including meditations that can be downloaded for use when working with young people and;
  • Policy and media coverage linked to mindfulness and its application in schools.
For a short overview of what mindfulness is visit the Oxford Mindfulness Centre's YouTube page or see The Guardian's article on 'Mindfulness: a beginner's guide'.
