Part 1: Mindfulness Practices

Mindfulness practices help students develop concentration, focused attention, centering, and calming skills. Developing awareness of what’s happening in our minds, emotions, and bodies builds our self-reflection and self-regulation skills.

Part 2: Emotional Awareness

Students develop skills in naming nuanced emotions, recognizing how emotions feel in the body at differing levels of intensity, and understanding how our thoughts drive our behavior and impact our emotions.  This understanding is essential for Inquiry.

Part 3: Inquiry

Students develop skills in identifying stressful thoughts and taking those thoughts through Inquiry in order to discover new possibilities and perspectives.

Inquiry Based Stress Reduction is a simple method (four questions and the turnarounds) of identifying and questioning thoughts that cause stress, fear, anger and violence.  In any stressful situation - personally or historically - you can identify the thoughts being believed, and then question them in order to discover new options and perspectives.

The video below offers an overview of Inquiry.
