Gathering to Support Mindfulness in Schools Hosted by Karuna Contemplative Living Tuesday, October 6th 7:00 – 8:30pm 1725 SE Hawthorne Blvd Portland, OR Please join us for a presentation and discussion about Peace in Schools, a Portland non-profit organization that launched the first for-credit high school mindfulness course in the United States. Karuna invites you to this Open House to learn more about this organization and the life changing impact mindfulness education has on teens. We’ll be discussing the growing movement to make mindfulness a recognized and valued discipline in public education. Peace in Schools’ full-year course, known as Mindful Studies, supports the emotional, physical, and mental health of teens. This fall the program is expanding to serve five Portland schools: Wilson, Lincoln, Cleveland, Alliance and Rosemary Anderson high schools. Join us at Karuna to learn about this vital program. Let’s explore how our community can support the work of Peace in Schools.
