Our Mission

The mission of Peace of Mind is to help create kinder and more inclusive schools.

The Peace of Mind program integrates mindfulness, social and emotional learning, and conflict resolution for elementary school students.

The Peace of Mind Curriculum Series, storybooks and supporting materials teach children how to focus their attention, calm themselves, practice kindness, and solve conflicts peacefully.

Let the children show you!  Check out this clip about Peace of Mind from the documentary A Joyful Mind.

More about Peace of Mind

Our Community

Our Peace of Mind community is growing! Teachers, counselors, social workers and parents nationwide and in overseas have invested in Peace of Mind for the students and schools they care about.

Fourth Grade teacher Jared Catapano recently wrote:

I use the Peace of Mind curriculum in my Fourth Grade class in Washington, DC. I notice that my students are regularly more engaged, mindful, and kind than their grade-level peers. I attribute their ability to think through their problems and connect with their social-emotional learning to the Peace of Mind curriculum. Linda Ryden has truly created something that works for ALL students and can be a great tool for teachers to become more in tune with their students. I highly recommend this curriculum to any and all teachers!

We hope that Peace of Mind can support you and your school, too!


Happy Summer!
Peace of Mind wishes you all a wonderful summer break. We will be busy developing Peace of Mind teacher training, working with new pilot schools, and supporting the Peace of Mind Community.

We were so thrilled to host mindful hip hop artist JusTme here in May!  He brought mindfulness in his inimitable way to students at Lafayette and Horace Mann in three music, wisdom and dance-filled performances.  Can’t wait to have him back!  Check him out at JustMindfulness.com.

Linda and Jillian offered the Keynote Address on Creating Mindful Learners at the Fairfax Futures 13th Annual School Readiness Symposium on April 29th, introducing over 300 early childhood educators to the power of mindfulness for young children and the Peace of Mind Curriculum.  Thank you for the opportunity, Fairfax Futures!

Our first storybook, Rosie’s Brain, is now available!  Rosie’s Brain introduces elementary school students to mindfulness skills and the parts of the brain that help us manage anger and calm down: the amygdala, hippocampus, and prefrontal cortex. A great gift for the children you love!
