The Conscious Classroom illuminates the power of mindfulness and contextual thinking to transform classroom culture and facilitate deeper learning. Thousands of teens in Philadelphia public high schools are learning to de-stress, think systemically, and develop care for themselves and for others with the Inner Strength System™. In a world so cynical about public education, Edelstein’s work, which has been empirically validated, shows that education for well-being truly works.
Given how rapidly our world is changing, changes that give rise to emotional as well as practical upheaval, our youth urgently need an education that prepares them both inwardly and outwardly to succeed, find purpose, and be happy. This book shows educators, parents, and everyone concerned about the next generation a well-thought through, illuminating, and uplifting educational system, one that supports kids today and sets the foundation for their well-being in the world of tomorrow.
