We provide a variety of educational programming and mindfulness workshops to children and adults inside schools and throughout the community. If you would like to participate in an upcoming training session, or invite our teachers into your space, please contact us for more information!
We provide a 16-session in-class mindfulness program, called Calm + Kind + Focused, which is offered twice per week for eight weeks to children in grades K-12. Each 20-minute session is implemented in the classroom. The program follows a curriculum developed by Shanthi Project, based on the Mindful Schools and Mind-UP curricula. Both Mindful Schools and Mind-UP have extensive outcome research showing consistent increases in self-awareness, attentional capacity, self-regulation and social skills.
Connected Classrooms helps classroom teachers set up and execute daily mindfulness routines, student check-ins, and short mindfulness activities. Each month, we provide teachers with instructions, materials, and resources, and a dedicated Shanthi Project instructor touches base throughout the school year.
This program was designed not to be too time-consuming—we’ve done all the prep work so teachers can focus on nurturing a connected and regulated classroom. Learn more here.
After-School ProgramS + Summer Camps
Our after-school programs and summer camp provide trauma-informed yoga and mindfulness-based games, activities, and art. These hour-long classes are taught in community-based venues as well as schools.
The successful outcomes of our Calm + Kind + Focused curricula can continue outside of the classroom to keep positive emotional responses at the forefront outside of a student's traditional learning structure.
CLASSROOM Teacher + Staff In-Service Training
Shanthi Project offers a variety of trainings, including an introduction to trauma-informed practices, mindfulness practices for the classroom, and self-care for the classroom teacher.
We can customize any training to meet the needs of your school or organization.
Parent + Child Workshops
Presented in a series or as one-time training, our certified teachers share mindfulness techniques that can be utilized in the home setting. When pro-social behavior is displayed by multiple members of the family, the results have a lasting impact on the family's overall health and wellbeing. Parents and children learn side-by-side in a fun and engaging workshop.
This workshop can be based in a school or community setting.
This six-week class, called "Stress Reduction through Mindfulness and Self-Discovery," is designed for college-aged students and their teachers and staff. Teachers focus on assisting participants in learning valuable skills such as managing stress, chronic pain, and anxiety through the experiential learning of mindfulness. This class, which is presented in a supportive group setting, is appropriate for beginners, as well as those wanting to enhance a current meditation practice. Each week builds upon the previous, and teacher guidance is provided along the way.
We will help you build a more resilient and compassionate workplace! Mindfulness has been shown to increase focus and productivity, and decrease job-stress and anxiety. Shanthi Project will customize a one-day workshop or ongoing mindfulness training for your staff based on your company goals and unique industry challenges.
