Mindfulness

A nationally recognized leader in Mindfulness, McLean School provides Mindfulness Education to its students, faculty, staff and parents. Scientific research supports that a mindful practice reduces stress and aids focus and learning both inside and outside of the classroom. Mindfulness is a cornerstone to the transformative environment at McLean School.

Gratitude, Heartfulness, Empathy, and Positive Thinking are all Mindfulness lessons taught in McLean’s classrooms. The continuation and reinforcement of these activities at home provide practice time and skill development for both students and parents. Parents who are interested in learning more about the benefits of Mindfulness and how to incorporate the practice at home should contact Mindfulness Coordinator, Rosie Waugh.
