Bringing Mindfulness to Classrooms Through Music with Stacy Sims, Founder of Mindful Music Moments

Imagine an entire school pausing, turning inward, and dedicating several unbroken minutes to mindfulness guided by a prompt overlaid with classical music. Imagine each student, teacher, and school staff member beginning the day with this experience. You can almost feel the collective exhale and see the clear minds emerging from each musical moment. This is exactly what happens in classrooms and schools that partner with Mindful Music Moments, a program that brings mindfulness practice to K-12 students in partnership with world-class performing arts organizations. In the second episode of our Mindfulness Education miniseries, Mindful Music Moments creator Stacy Sims explains just what makes this program so powerful, and how educators can begin to practice some of the most effective aspects of mindfulness right now. Connect with Stacy and Mindful Music Moments:Website: https://www.thewell.world/mindful-music (now available by app!)Check out the PBS Newshour SpecialIf you liked what you heard, rate and review Off the Assembly LineGo to offtheassemblyline.co to sign up for the Education Innovation Town Hall (details in show intro!)Connect with Rebecca on LinkedIn or at rebeccaareed.com.Learn more about the Teacher Mastermind at http://teachermastermind.comFollow Off the Assembly Linetwitter @offassemblylineinstagram @offtheassemblyline_podcastfacebook @offtheassemblylinepodcast.Special thanks to Scott Holmes for our intro music.
