Mindfulness is a universal human capacity that can be strengthened through practice. It is made up of two foundational learning skills: focus and relaxation.
Mindfulness teaches us that we have power over our minds. It teaches us how to be happier and increases our self-confidence."
With all of the attention around mindfulness in education these days, you might wonder if it really works. Is it a passing fad or a catalyst for breakthrough growth in schools?
We’ve seen this growth again and again. Our program, Modern Mindfulness, was designed in collaboration with Vermont public school teachers and students to ensure successful outcomes and easy implementation. Modmind is an interactive online program that has proven to be a breakthrough approach to strengthen executive functioning skills resulting in a focused and relaxed student.
A successful mindfulness program should show positive results within a year; increase student engagement, decrease teachers stress. Modmind has done this in several schools with only five minutes of practice a day!
This is a low-cost way to make a dramatic impact on the culture and performance of your school. Check out a free trial of Modmind here.

What would happen if an entire city practiced mindfulness? To answer this question, the Vermont Community Foundation awarded the Center for Mindful Learning (CML) an Innovations and Collaborations Grant to teach and integrate mindfulness into the core city institutions of Winooski. CML has partnered with the Winooski Police Department, the Winooski School District, and Centerpoint Adolescent Treatment Services to implement a city-wide mindfulness initiative in Winooski. The initiative, called Mindful City, will also offer mindfulness training opportunities to parents, community members, and businesses throughout Winooski.
