Developing & Delivering A Mindfulness Intervention

Developing & Delivering A Mindfulness Intervention

On this page, we will be sharing the resources used to develop and deliver a mindfulness intervention using a whole-school approach in Rwanda and Ethiopia. 

As the project progresses, we will be adding training related to teaching mindfulness and delivering mindfulness with children, and the learning and resources from developing the context-specific intervention itself.

Adult Mindfulness Training

To deliver a mindfulness intervention with children, first teacher educators must have a strong understanding and experience of practising mindfulness for adults. WP2 began with a 14-week adult mindfulness training course, completed by the teacher educator team.
