Minds Over Matter is a local organization dedicated to delivering mindfulness training to students, educators, families and community members throughout Delmarva.
Minds Over Matter's core values are to:
Be open, curious, and present
Be the change
Empower individual resilience
Be committed to professionalism and generosity
Our core focus is to help one cultivate skill to respond rather than react to the challenges of life.
Utilizing the K-12 Mindful Schools and .b (dot-be) curricula, Minds Over Matter offers training for everyone involved in the education of children, from the students themselves to the administration, teachers, and families. Our program is designed to meet the specific needs of schools and students.
Our evidence-based approach to improving behavior and academic performance has been used by thousands of educators in all 50 states and more than 60 countries.
Our program is adaptable and developmentally appropriate for teaching key mindfulness concepts and practices to children of all ages. Students learn to attend to the breath, the body, the five senses, thoughts, feelings and impulses. They also are led to become aware of the thoughts and feelings of those around them. These skills help develop the ability to respond rather than react to situations in daily life.
