What Is: Mindfulness


What Is: Mindfulness (WIM) brings mindfulness education to students in Philadelphia and professional development for educators. Mindfulness is a powerful tool that hat has been shown to decrease stress, and increase concentration, impulse control, and emotional regulation. Mindfulness is an avenue towards empowerment, empathy, and embodiment. Our curriculum is trauma-informed, healing-centered, and neuroscience-based.

We are thrilled to welcome a new team member, Mindfulness Educator Pamela Freeman. Pamela brings her years of experience as a therapist with a dedicated mindfulness practice. She is excited to bring the classroom program to her neighborhood elementary school in spring 2020.

We offer our programs to schools so cost is not a barrier - that means your support allows us to bring quality programming to students throughout Philadelphia and grow our team. In the spring of 2020 we will have doubled our schools to four Philadelphia elementary/middle schools! WIM is committed to the accessibility of wellness & healing.

WIM envisions a mindfulness community that tends to self-awareness, compassion and empathy, in order for participants to feel free and whole, as they navigate inequitable systems.

We are so grateful for your support!
