Learn the heart-based meditation technique, the science behind it and ways to implement it in your classroom as well as your daily life.Meditation is possibly the most difficult skill to learn and even harder to teach. Thanks to intensive, ongoing studies of the heart and the way it communicates with the brain, heart-based meditation is one of the easiest to learn and most rewarding forms of meditation. Used by police officers, soldiers returning home, trauma victims, executives and more, heart-based meditation can help reduce stress and anxiety by over 50% with in three minutes. In this session you will learn the technique, the science behind it, ways you can easily implement it in your classroom and even see some technology you can use to fine tune those skills.

Heart-based meditation is easy to learn, easy to teach and proven effective in classroom settings.
