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.

Mindfulness Director Initiative
The Mindfulness Director Initiative (MDI) 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 in mindfulness practice. The organization was inspired by the Middlesex Mindfulness Program model and co-founded by Doug Worthen. If you are interested in being a partner school, a mindfulness director, or supporting the organization in other ways please fill out your information here.
