Working Together

The Middlesex Mindfulness Program is committed to supporting other schools in integrating mindfulness programs into their school communities.  The program hopes to be a resource for publishing research, hosting conferences, and making details about the Middlesex program freely available.

We have created a document titled “The Mindfulness Program at the Middlesex School: Evolution and Structure” describing the history and current structure of our program in the hope that it may be helpful to you in growing or developing a mindfulness program. The original document was updated in 2018.

WholeSchool Mindfulness
WholeSchool Mindfulness is a non-profit that was created to help all types of schools hire experienced mindfulness teachers (aka Mindfulness Directors) to support their school communities (students, faculty, staff, and parents) in mindfulness practice. The organization was inspired by the Middlesex Mindfulness Program model and founded by Doug Worthen (MX ’96), Ben Painter (MX ’14), and Marc Waxman. If you are interested in being a partner school, a mindfulness director, or supporting the organization in other ways see the WholeSchool contact us website.
