About Mindfulness-Based Adult Education

Mindfulness has been incorporated into the K-12 curriculum with a lot of success providing students and teachers with tools that will serve them beyond the classroom and for the years to come. The use of the techniques and strategies is not limited to children and can be easily and with great success adapted for an adult student. 

Numerous studies have found that practicing mindfulness causes changes in the brain regions concerned with memory consolidation, meta-awareness, and emotion regulation.

Mindfulness Based Adult Education focuses on the implementation of mindfulness for students in colleges, universities, and continuing education.
