An excellent support for classrooms, and schools, Breathe, creates the opportunity for the teacher to learn alongside the students. Best suited for Grade 8 and above but adaptable for younger ages, Breathe, can meet core curricular standards for health.
Designed for the new to the practice, Breathe, is a simple 21 day guided mindfulness meditation journal that supports the individual in developing or adding to a wellness routine.
Each practice starts with an intention and suggests essential oils that can be paired with the meditation to support the practice.
The meditation itself will last between 5-10 minutes, but that is up to the meditator. To finish there is space left for reflection.
Breathe was created by a trained mindfulness meditation facilitator and educator, Melissa Johnson. She has been facilitating mindfulness workshops and year-long professional inquiries over the past 6 years. Along with her teaching partner, Kelly Hanson, she founded 4C Consulting, a grassroots social enterprise with that holds the intention to contemplate, create, and connect community. Their first book: A Mindful Teaching Community, edited by Kelly Hanson, follows the two on a self study with a group of teachers that explore what mindfulness means to them.
