Check this out: Practicing Meditation in School

I really love this idea. It’s so nice to start a class or session with some reflection or quiet time before diving into new material. This could be through meditation or a quiet review exercise or a simple game relative to the course material.

I think this is especially important for kids who are in school for at least 6 hours per day. It brings order to the class to have everyone calm down and focus.

Of course this is totally CRAZY in U.S. society. Meditating at school?! Are schools now monasteries?! What a waste of time!

But I really hope that more teachers will give this a shot, just like Paul Barnwell, who explains his positive experience in the article below.
