In a seemingly tumultuous time of political change, caring and healing are needed now more than ever. This is especially true in education, which has been criticized for a disproportionate focus on the technical aspects of teaching with less focus on its “human” aspects. Creating Caring and Supportive Educational Environments for Meaningful Learning is a collection of innovative research on the practical and theoretical questions involved in organizing traditional and nontraditional areas of study around themes of care and support for students within the framework of current educational systems and standards. While highlighting topics including service learning, ethics of care, and student mental health, this book is ideally designed for teachers, administrators, researchers, and academicians seeking current research on the importance and ethics of the human aspects of education.

In her debut book, Angela Sette reveals the limitless possibilities that can be acquired when we learn to harness our own brainpower. Through her own stories of the struggles and successes of raising children, she leaves the reader with an overwhelming feeling of soulfulness, while merging the lessons that were learned about the brain and our energy along the way. Throughout the book, she explores how we are all artistically woven intricately into the unique beings that we are today by the people in our lives, life experiences and knowledge we attain and uncovers the ways in which this knowledge is unexpectedly learned not just from our own struggles and our elders’ but from our youngest teachers, our children. Intermingled amongst stories are methods that will chip away fear along with self limiting beliefs. Readers will find themselves reconnected with their passions, desires and role as evolutionary beings with the ability to open their minds to their own human potential. Master your energy, time and emotions by optimizing the brain’s superpowers! Richly expressed through authentic stories that inspire human potential as in Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill along with transformational qualities found in The Seat Of The Soul by Gary Zukav.

Weaving Complementary Knowledge System and Mindfulness to Educate a Literate Citizenry for Sustainable and Healthy Lives contains 24 chapters written by 33 authors, from 9 countries. The book, which consists of two sections on mindfulness in education and wellness, is intended for a broad audience of educators, researchers, and complementary medicine practitioners. Members of the general public may find appeal and relevance in chapters that advocate transformation in a number of spheres, including K-12 schools, museums, universities, counselling, and everyday lifestyles. Innovative approaches to education, involving meditation and mindfulness, produce numerous advantages for participants in schools, museums, and a variety of self-help contexts of everyday life. In several striking examples, critical stances address a band wagon approach to the application of mindfulness, often by for-profit companies, to purportedly improve quality of education, in contexts where learning has been commodified and ideologies such as neoliberalism have been mandated by politicians and implemented by policy makers. In different international contexts, Buddhist roots of mindfulness are critically reviewed by a number of authors. Chapters on wellness focus on complementary practices, including art therapy, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Iridology, and yoga. Foci in the wellness section include sexual health, prescription drug addiction, obesity, diabetes, cancer, and a variety of common ailments that can be addressed using complementary medicine. New theories, such a polyvagal theory, provide scope for people to become aware of their bodies in different ways and maintain wellbeing through changes in lifestyle, heightened self-awareness, and self-help.

A classroom is a high-energy, dynamic environment in which there are dozens of moving parts at any given moment. Teachers need to be able to think quickly and remain calm in the face of constant change. Being mindful helps teachers act effectively as opposed to reactively, which facilitates classroom management and improves the climate of the classroom and school. Mindfulness also helps teachers reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus and organization, and be more observant and responsive. This six-page, quick-reference laminated guide is designed to help busy teachers easily access a wide range of basic mindfulness practices that help them return to the present moment throughout the day. It also guides teachers through the process of teaching mindfulness to students (K-12) in the classroom so that students are calmer, more confident, more self-reflective, less reactive, and better able to manage relationships and problem solve.
