.b Mindfulness for teens (11+)
.b, (pronounced dot-be), stands for "STOP, BREATHE and BE!". This simple act of mindfulness provides the kernel of a nine lesson course for young people. Written by experienced classroom teachers and mindfulness practitioners and evaluated positively by the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford Brookes, .b can be used in a wide range of contexts and age ranges, including adults.
.b is designed to engage everyone, including the most cynical of student audiences. It is taught with striking visuals, film clips and activities that bring mindfulness to life without losing the expertise and integrity of classic mindfulness teaching.
.b can help young people to:
Feel happier and calmer
Get on better with others
Improve concentration and learn better
Cope with stress and anxiety
Perform better in music and sport
Helena Edwards is qualified to deliver the .b programme and welcomes enquiries from school and other youth organisations.
Helena has been succesfully integrating mindfulness techniques into her work as an Occupational Therapist with children and families for quite some time and she is currently studying towards a Masters Degree in Mindfulness with the University of Aberdeen.
