DOC: Healthy Habits of Mind is about mindfulness practice in kindergarten and preschool. Most people have been told by a teacher in school to pay attention. But few of us have been taught how to pay attention. When children learn to get in touch with their thoughts, feelings and body early in life, it has an influence on their well-being and learning abilities in school and preschool. This documentary features:
NEUROSCIENCE: leading neuroscientist Dr. Richard Davidson explains the science behind mindfulness and how it can increase happiness and well-being in youth.
IN-CLASS INSTRUCTION: see kindergarten teacher Renee Harris teaching mindful breathing, listening, eating, movement, and heartfulness in her Berkeley, California public school classroom.
TRAINING FOR EDUCATORS: the film peeks into a Mindful Schools Curriculum Training course taught by Program Directors Megan Cowan and Chris McKenna.
THE VALUE OF MINDFULNESS IN EDUCATION: interviews with Megan Cowan, Renee Harris, and Dr. Richard Davidson explain why mindfulness belongs in schools.
