Combining brain research, mindful self-regulation SKILLS, social-emotional learning and academics, we can help each child have a greater impact in their ability to learn.

The question isn’t, “Should we have Erin come?” The question to ask is, “How could we not have Erin come?” Our students need to learn this and we need to know how to teach it to them.

Grow Strong Roots

“Mindfulness education can reduce the negative effects of stress and increase the student's ability to stay engaged helping them stay on track academically and avoid behavior problems.” - Harvard University’s Center for Education Policy Research


If there are good nutrients in the soil, a tree will grow a strong root system, trunk and branches. It will develop leaves and become an active part of the ecosystem, helping support other life. Our kids' brains are the same way! Science tells us that in order to have a strong root system and a happy, healthy brain, we need one thing: mindful awareness of self and others. We need to learn courage, creativity, gratitude, kindfulness, respect, responsibility, growth mindset and healthy living to boots brains and feed the root system of well-being and growth.
