The Inner Explorer programs use an audio-guided format to deliver Mindfulness Based Social Emotional Learning (MBSEL) content to students in PreK-12 classrooms. They follow the widely studied Mindfulness Base Stress Reduction (MBSR) protocol with age appropriate modifications in language and length. Each program consists of an 18 week series of 90 MP3 recordings (50 recordings for PreK-K) for use every day in every classroom. Each 10-minute track facilitates the development of self-awareness, self-control, resilience and compassion, all critical skills for success in school and success in life.

Our approach is unique in that it’s automated. Teachers simply press ‘play’ on the MP3 player/docking station and participate along with students without worrying about a lesson plan. Research results from an 8-week trial showed that both students and teachers benefited from the program. Students who participated in the program, compared to those who did not, experienced a decrease in behavior issues and an increase in reading, math and science grades! Teachers who participated in the program, compared to those who did not, experienced a decrease in stress and increase in mindfulness. Teachers also found they could use the program every day while getting their planned curriculum accomplished.

The Inner Explorer programs do not “teach” mindfulness in the traditional sense. They create the conditions, through a daily practice, that make this learning possible. Students begin to access their inner wisdom, to develop their unique skills and to embody their potential. Our hope is that as each generation of students practices every day, it will have a cascading effect on the next generation and ultimately will help heal our global community.
