School-Based Program 

Our work in schools is based on the Attune•ED curriculum, a multimedia mindfulness-based intervention that teaches key mental health concepts and skills in a trauma-informed manner.

The Research

Neuroscience research suggests that practicing mindfulness even 12 minutes a day twice a week over an 8-week period can:

  • Enhance attentional control
  • Increase emotional regulation
  • Promote flexibility
  • Can actually change the structure of the brain in areas associated with executive functioning

The APPROACH

At OMBI, we are dedicated to getting high-quality mindfulness programs and education into the community. We utilize Attune•ED, a school-based curricula for grades K-12 to help students learn mindfulness skills that set a foundation for mental and emotional health, academic learning and healthy interpersonal relationships.

The Goal

Ideally, used as a lifelong learning tool, these teachings can help all students gain understanding about themselves and their connection to each other and the broader world.

 

In addition to the student-focused curriculum, OMBI provides Teacher and Administrator  Professional Development Training
