Our Courses

People in the Mindful Literacy community are life-long learners. We see adults as students and children as teachers. Our courses focus on building a deep awareness of systems and of expanding your thinking. No matter the course, the big picture always comes back to how the information integrates into your personal experience and how you relate to yourself, to your community, and to our world. 

Our courses include one or more of the following topics: Mindfulness, Mindful communication, Literacy [Language, Reading, Writing, Spelling, Thinking], Special Education

The research of teaching mindfulness practices in school settings is hot off the press and keeps growing!
