Inner Explorer’s daily mindfulness practices reduce student stress, help strengthen self-regulation skills and improve academic performance. Teachers in pre-K through 12th grade classrooms simply log on and press ‘play’. While the implementation is simple, the results are dramatic. 10 mindful minutes are all you need to help kids focus, reduce behavior issues and give yourself more time to engage and inspire your students.
With over 30 years of combined experience, we understand how difficult it is to develop a daily practice. We have created programs that help students develop a daily practice, while offering teachers the opportunity to learn alongside students.
Inner Explorer programs follow the world-renowned Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction protocol, and have been tailored to specific age groups. The programs provide daily consistency, within the regular curriculum, with existing classroom teachers.
Inner Explorer has made daily mindfulness practice so easy. With just 10 mindful minutes a day, you help kids pay better attention, reduce behavior issues, reduce their stress and yours, and give yourself more time to engage and inspire your kids... Just Press Play!
Our scientific paper was featured in Mindfulness Research Monthly, a publication of the American Mindfulness Research Association (AMRA). Maximizing Mindful Learning: Mindful Awareness Intervention Improves Elementary School Students’ Quarterly Grades This paper discusses results from the first empirical study testing the feasibility and effectiveness of an audio-guided mindful awareness training program on quarterly grade performance in traditional US public elementary schools. Structured as a quasi-experiment, the study demonstrates that a 10-min-per-day, fully automated program significantly enhances students’ quarterly grades in reading and science, compared to a control group, without disrupting teaching operations (N = 191).
Co-Founder Janice Houlihan presented at the University of New Hampshire Learn for Life workshop. Janice spoke about Inner Explorer and mindfulness education and how they relate to positive youth development. Research indicates positive impacts on young people as well as adults who teach, guide and work with them. Janice discussed an integrated perspective that connects mindfulness education to social/emotional learning, including self-regulation, attention, healthy choices, empathy and compassion. In addition, the workshop highlighted strategies for implementing mindful awareness activities in various school and youth program environments. The audience experienced mindfulness activities for use with children, and a variety of available resources were shared. The workshop helped the audience develop a plan for implementing a mindful moment and mindful teaching in schools.
There's a large-scale community mindfulness effort underway in Flint, MI to combat a health crisis: Flint area children may have suffered irreversible damage due lead-contaminated water.
The Greater Flint community in Michigan faces not only the task of supporting its youngest members in this time of crisis, but of remaining resilient in spite of it. This month, one local non-profit organization, the Crim Fitness Foundation, launched an ambitious initiative to bring mindfulness education to all of the Flint Community Schools and beyond.
Evidence from the emerging field of contemplative science points to mindfulness practices like mediation, yoga, and breathing exercises as potentially impacting brain systems and related cognitive and behavioral abilities shown to be most impacted by lead exposure.
Inner Explorer being one of the partners of CRIM Fitness Foundation, will provide mindfulness practice programs to all schools and households in the city of Flint.
