How do spiritual practices transform what we typically think of as being secular spaces?  Fascinating.  And, who are "spriitual practices" for?  I love how the assumptions of the article/research busts open yet another pardigm!

Bringing Mindfulness to Schools: An Interview with Co-Founder Megan Cowan - Mindfulness and Psychotherapy | Mindfulness and Meditation | Scoop.it

When we teach young people mindfulness, we are teaching them in two ways: directly and indirectly. As a parent or educator, the way you respond to your own stress, impatience, disappointment, etc. is teaching just as much (if not more) as what you tell your children/students to do.
