Mindfulness can build a critical foundation for transforming Michigan school communities. By developing skills to focus attention, regulate emotions and relate to others with compassion, mindfulness training promotes a school environment where teachers can effectively teach and students feel safe, calm and engaged to learn. The Michigan Collaborative for Mindfulness in Education (MC4ME) is dedicated to fostering the teaching and dissemination of mindfulness practices in K-12 and higher education using best practices, established curricula and scientific evidence.
In response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic we’ve transformed many of our programs and events into virtual formats.

Compassionate and mindful school communities throughout Michigan where all students thrive.
Mindfulness has helped me throughout my life and sometimes I don’t realize I’m doing it in the first place. It helps me focus and encourages me to try harder. It tells me not to give up and reminds me of my strength, family, and past – as well as who I am.’’
