Product description


Solidly grounded and personally accessible, this is an insightful and compassionate guide to supporting the growth of mindful awareness in children and students. Speaking from a lifetime of experience learning and teaching about this important way of being in the world, Daniel Rechtschaffen shows educators and parents how to find the inner sense of clarity that is so essential in helping child and adolescent learners develop concentration, compassion, and connection in our increasingly chaotic and challenging environments.-- (01/06/2015)

Have you ever wondered what a child taught mindfulness at an early age would look like when he grew up? He'd look like Daniel Rechtschaffen. The greatest strength of this valuable new book is in the combination of practical mindfulness-based tools for youth with the author's integrated, compassionate worldview, developed through a lifetime of practice and honed for years in school settings.-- (01/06/2015)

This is the book the field has been waiting for. Rechtschaffen skillfully blends science and wisdom traditions, teaching readers the inner work that will prepare them to, in turn, teach mindfulness to young people, and providing a wealth of clear, child-centered strategies to help our educational communities approach instruction and learning in a mindful way. If we can take his message to heart, the field of k-12 education, where I have served for over four decades, is about to take a great leap forward.-- (01/06/2015)

The Way of Mindful Education . . . not only allows teachers to recognize an increasing need for mindful education, but also offers comprehensive and attainable methods as to how to go about introducing mindful education to their students. This book could greatly improve the academic experiences of children of all ages and backgrounds. . . . This book is written primarily for educators, however anyone working with children could benefit from its teachings.-- (01/06/2015) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
