Empowering educators

to heal and transform their communities through mindfulness.

Cultivating equity in under-resourced schools with mindfulness-based resilience and leadership curriculum. Together, we can close the achievement gap from the inside out.


Schools are the frontlines of the future, yet their systems of support are outdated. Educators rarely receive the resources they need to meet the mounting stress, anxiety, and trauma of their students (let alone take care of themselves!). From high dropout rates and teacher turnover to low test scores and staff morale, even the most well-intentioned schools are struggling.

We believe that mental health is a right, not a privilege.

A school’s success depends on the wellbeing of its students, staff, and administrators. Together, we can support them all. Mind Body Awareness Projects offers research-backed, mindfulness-based training to help you realize your school’s potential.

We begin with the foundations of trauma-informed mindfulness to help educators develop practical practices and techniques to care for themselves personally and professionally. The second phase focuses on application to help teachers and administrators create classrooms that realize socio-emotional well-being as well as academic rigor.

Our culturally responsive approach examines the intergenerational, historical, and systemic forms of trauma impacting students and staff on a daily basis. We utilize the frameworks of developmental trauma disorder (DTD), Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB), and Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) to understand the root causes and coach participants through practical, mindfulness-based techniques to respond with compassion and understanding.


Our Calm Minds Advanced  program offers professional training for educators, staff, to begin implementing mindfulness based learning and techniques in the classroom with the youth they serve.

Thank you for everything you’ve given us over this course of time. It has been extremely beneficial to my life personally and professionally. As a black man in the space, it felt great and inclusive and relevant. That is not very common so thank you so much for that.

“The reason you should partner with this team of amazing humans is that they live their work. They’re living examples of mindfulness in motion. They’re real, they show up with authenticity of who they are. They don’t sugar coat things, they talk about the real stresses and scenarios where people have to navigate real life.”
