The Mindful Teacher's Toolkit is an essential resource for mindful educators. It's chock-full of hard won insights, and there's love and rigor in every page, practice, and lesson. Given the adversity so many are facing, this is a book that's made for the moment.
There is much going on in the world in the name of education that has hardly anything to do with education. Much too is going on in the world in the realm of teaching that is all but mindful. The result is the state of the world we are in today. But education is based on the principle of hope and of possibility.
Here is how.
At a time when we are all more distracted than ever, Burke and Hawkins skillfully communicate how the combination of Mindful Awareness Training (MAT) and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) create the foundation for Awareness-based Wellbeing (ABW). This book is a treasure trove of resources for a whole span of ages--everyone can find a relevant and useful practice and activity in this book. This invaluable resource nurtures the mind as well as the heart.

Both Kevin Hawkins and Amy Burke, authors of The Mindful Teacher’s Toolkit: Awareness-based Wellbeing in Schools, have worked internationally with children and young people and with teachers in developing awareness-based well-being through mindfulness and social-emotional learning (SEL), so they bring to their book a wealth of experience and deep knowledge of the theory and practice of mindfulness across cultures…There is so much in this book that it is impossible to do it justice in a short review.
