    About Mindfulness:Mindfulness is a non-religious, centering, and calming practice of moment-by-moment awareness of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, characterized mainly by "acceptance": attention to thoughts and feelings without judging whether they are right or wrong. Mindfulness reduces stress, enhances performance, increases insight, and encourages awareness through observing one’s own mind while intensifying empathy and attention to others’ well-being. Mindfulness gives a time in life to suspend judgment and unleash natural curiosity about the workings of the mind, approaching experiences with warmth and kindness—to the self and others. It is used widely in schools, communities, and workplaces worldwide as a strategy for focus, clarity, resiliency, and relaxation.Session Timeline:15 minutes: settle in, mindfulness to relax them and center their focus60 minutes: impromptu writing they bring; can be any genre of writing they want to explore or school-related if they need help; there is no writing curriculum followed to encourage creativity and relaxation; participants’ can work privately, ask for assistance, and/or share their work15 minutes: wrap-up with mindfulness
