High School Student
Thank you LG for teaching us about mindfulness. Because mindfulness allows me be aware of other people's feelings and be aware of how my actions affect others.
Inner Explorer makes me feel relaxed and very calm and ready to learn. It can help everyone in our school. After Inner Explorer I am super ready to learn and I have an easier time writing.
I love having mindfulness. It has made me feel a lot better, especially through hard times.
Elementary School Student
If all the children had Inner Explorer, there wouldn't be any violence and they could feel safe wherever they are.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Inner Explorer?
Inner Explorer TM is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide mindfulness in schools for PreK-12 classrooms, helping children develop self-awareness, self-control, resilience and compassion. Each series contains 90 audio-guided practices that can be used every day by simply logging in and pressing play. Students and their teachers participate together in the brief (5-10 minute) daily practices. No prep, planning or curriculum changes required.
How is Inner Explorer different from other programs?
We've created our mindfulness in school programs the latest scientific research in cognitive neuroscience and developmental psychology. We've also fine-tuned the approach over the past five years with direct feedback and guidance from thousands of teachers, administrators and students. Our programs address the major challenges many school systems face, including academic performance, graduation rates, discipline problems, school climate and bullying. Additionally, our programs are simple to implement and cost effective, so they can be rolled out quickly to deliver significant improvements in student achievement. The Inner Explorer program does not require extensive outside training or facilitator. The "Press Play" format allows for immediate access to the program as teachers and students listen to the guided daily practice together. We offer a parent/caretaker "Tune In" so they can listen to the same program as their children each day. This allows families to not only practice together, but also bridges home and school. Most importantly, our programs help children become more compassionate, responsible and productive citizens.
