Mindfulness is the intentional cultivation of moment-to-moment attention and awareness in order to enhance behavioral, academic and social-emotional learning to assure life readiness. As we practice mindfulness, we become more aware of direct experiences, beyond the chattering mind. As a result, we begin to act in accordance with their essence, potential, and purpose.
