Mindfulness in MMSD

Mindfulness is awareness cultivated by paying attention in a sustained and particular way: on purpose, in the present moment, without judgment.
- Jon Kabat Zinn


Mindfulness in MMSD, a part of the MMSD Employee Wellness Program, offers professional development and training to all MMSD staff. The program is founded on evidence that mindful awareness contributes significantly to personal and relational well-being and a belief that mindfulness is a way of being and not a technique. Guided by a vision that prioritizing staff well-being ultimately enhances student wellness and learning, the aim is to provide wide access for our teachers and all staff. District-wide courses are offered frequently throughout the school year and during the summer. Consultation and presentations to schools and departments are available upon request, and resources for deeper individual exploration and learning are also available.
