“The effect of just a small amount of daily meditation practice in these youths is proving to be  transformative across many domains of cognitive emotional and social functioning.”

The Changing Minds Program is currently operating in a high school in New York City and a Middle and Upper School in Los Angeles. We’re working with educators, students and our consulting scientists to refine and map the curriculum so that we can share it with other interested educators and schools.

The DVD of Changing Minds at Concord High School with bonus footage is available online at Amazon.com
