Please join us for Mindful Kids Miami’s Ambassador of Mindfulness Dinner, honoring Scott Rogers, a nationally recognized leader in the area of mindfulness in law, Scott is also amindfulness teacher, author, and trainer. He is founder and director of the University of Miami School of Law’s Mindfulness in Law Program, co-founder of the University of Miami’s Mindfulness Research and Practice Initiative, and principal advisor to Innergy Meditation. Scott is the author of five books, including Mindful Parenting, and the recently released “The Elements of Mindfulness.”
In 2015 MKM implemented a groundbreaking mindfulness training collaboration with Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS). Program testimonials and anecdotal reports from MKM’s mindfully trained teachers confirm that the introduction of mindfulness concepts in the classroom has led to increased focus among students, an improved learning environment, and fewer behavioral problems including a decrease in bullying. MKM carries out its mission through its educator training program that includes the two signature core programs, the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and the 12-week Mindful Teachers Training Program (MTTP). Mindful Kids Miami has provided its two core mindfulness trainings to more than 600 educators throughout M-DCPS at various campuses. Preliminary research confirms significant improvements in the educator’s mindfulness facets (observing, describing, acting with awareness, non-judging and non-reactivity), self-compassion, and social interactions, while reducing anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
Your participation and contribution will assist Mindful Kids Miami continue to carry out this important mission. We hope to see you at our Dinner and thank you for your continued support.
