Mindfulness isn't just crystals and new age music. This presentation will address how we as educators can go about meeting students' psychosocial needs through meditation to facilitate academic performance and stress reduction. We will dispel some of the myths about mindfulness, talk about what mindfulness is and the science behind it, practice a meditation, explain how we use it in a high school American Studies course, and brainstorm how participants can use it in their own teaching/counselling/administrative practices.
