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 by publishing research, hosting conferences, and making details about the Middlesex program freely available.


We have created a document that describes 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.
