Mindfulness means paying attention in the present moment, with curiosity and letting go of judgement. But what can this actually offer schools?
To answer this question, I offer the REPS model found above.
We begin with P, for Presence: To be more aware of what is happening inside and around you: when teaching, walking, talking,
The R for Resilience: To use this presence to to get less caught in automatic judgements and impulses. To feel the stress, or the difficulty, and to keep open-minded, grounded and responsive.
