 Mindfulness for life – with Richard Burnett

There has been a recent explosion of interest in mindfulness and its proven benefits for mental and physical health. But perhaps the most profound shift is the introduction of mindfulness in schools, where it has the potential to equip future generations with vitally important skills for life. Could this be the path to a genuinely happier, wiser and more compassionate society?

Richard will share some innovate ways in which mindfulness is being taught to young people, including via the ground-breaking .b programme which he co-founded. He will review the exciting progress being made and look at the wider implications for our education system, our adult lives and our society.

“Mindfulness is an invaluable tool to help bolster young people’s resilience to psychological stress. It boosts concentration, depth of thought, happiness and achievement” ~ Sir Anthony Seldon

Richard Burnett is the Co-founder and Director of Mindfulness in Schools Project and co-created the highly-acclaimed 10 week .b (pronounced dot-b)mindfulness programme, designed to engage young people in the classroom. He is a teacher and boarding Housemaster at Tonbridge School, which generated significant media coverage in 2010 when it became the first school in the UK to put mindfulness on the curriculum.
