“MindUP reinforces the enjoyment and impact of the experience of learning.”
“When I began The Goldie Hawn Foundation in 2003 I knew that I had to do something to remedy the stress and anxiety children were experiencing. Every child deserves an equal chance to thrive, and so together with researchers, scientists, and educators I created the MindUP program.”
This has filled the void in a very different way than a counseling program or similar character education type of program! Thank you MindUP!
MindUP helps my faculty members to relieve stress and anxiety both in their lives and the lives of their students.
I would have no hesitation in recommending MindUP to other headteachers, the training and resources provided by the Hawn Foundation is excellent
As well as having huge impact in school, it has been amazing to have parents come to us and ask about mindful breathing as children have gone home and told their parents about 'the breath'. When this work transfers into home lives it becomes even more important
