What if kindness and compassion were taught in schools just like math and reading? What if kids were taught how to pay attention not only to lessons, but also to their own emotions? What if we all took steps to improve well-being in our lives and communities?
At the Center for Healthy Minds, we ask these questions through the lens of the latest science and research.
That’s why we’re making our mindfulness-based Kindness Curriculum, a set of practices used in one of our studies in preschool classrooms, freely available to you.
Scientists and experts who worked on this curriculum continue to expand the research, which not only includes efforts to replicate our research findings but also to spread them far and wide. For example, we had the unique honor of sharing insights from studying the Kindness Curriculum with Sesame Street Workshop to help shape their Spring 2017 season on “Kindness.”
