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.
