In Teach, Breathe, Learn, Meena Srinivasan highlights how
mindfulness can be an effective tool in the classroom. What makes this
book truly unique is her perspective as a classroom teacher, wrestling
daily with the conditions about which she writes.
Testimonials from students and colleagues are woven throughout the book. Teach, Breathe, Learn
is designed for educators at all levels, parents interested in sharing
mindfulness with their children, and anyone curious about how to
cultivate their own mindfulness practice and eventually teach
mindfulness to others.
Part 1 helps teachers develop compassion and shift from “reacting” to “responding” to demands.
Part 2 offers techniques for cultivating loving-kindness, gratitude and seeing students, colleagues, and parents as oneself.
The last section of the book introduces a curriculum
teachers can use to incorporate mindfulness into their classroom,
replete with lesson plans, handouts, and homework assignments.
