TEACHING SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL RESILIENCY
THROUGH THE PRACTICE OF MINDFULNESS.
Shanthi Project is a 501(c)(3) education nonprofit providing evidence-based mindfulness services to more than 4,000 children and adults annually across the Greater Lehigh Valley. Committed for more than a decade to education and advocacy, we are an established agency in the Trauma-Informed Education Movement, and the local authority on building resilience in an increasingly complex 21st-century world.
We offer the benefits of mindfulness, which increase mind-body self-awareness, reduce stress and improve focus. Our work promotes positive emotions that help others learn important skills to establish, or re-establish, healthier and more productive relationships at home, school, work, and within their communities.
"[Shanthi Project] gave us incredible tools, listened without judgement, and had a calming presence that made the hour feel like the most important of the day!"
- Farah Vallera, Professor of Practice,
