I have been practising mindfulness and meditation for some time now and cannot recommend it enough. After a few years of regular practise I became aware of its powerful affect on my mental states and personality as a whole. I came to see that it really is possible to change one's mind!
When I heard for the first time about the Breathing Space in Schools project I was really excited. Teaching kids to meditate alongside reading and other basic skills they'll need in their lives! Of course! What could help society more than training children and adults to become more mindful, positive and resilient in daily life. Srivati, founder of the project, brings many years experience of practising mindfulness and meditation to her work with young people and has now taught mindfulness and meditation in hundreds of schools.
The truly inspiring Breathing Space in Schools is affiliated with Breathing Space London, a secular project run by London Buddhist Centre in Bethnal Green, East London. I was so proud to support this fantastic project by taking photographs for their website www.breathingspaceinschools.co.uk
