Shelves: first-reads
This book is a fabulous "business model" of teaching mindfulness in a secular way to children and teens. I expected it to be more about teaching general techniques and practices, but this is a step-by-step layout of a specific program, complete with the topics for each weekly class. The appendix even includes model consent forms, flyers, and other practical tips!

Personally, I don't intend to create a program like this; I was looking more for general ideas, but I did learn many general ideas and

As a Mindfulness Educator, I firmly believe that A Still Quiet Place is a tremendous resource for any child-nurturer wishing to share the practice of Mindfulness with children and adolescents. First off, the book is very well-written, easy to read, and peppered with honest-and-funny anecdotes that bring the text to life (the reader is even reminded, at points, to READ mindfully!). The information contained within the book is made accessible to a wide audience, providing informative and effective ...more

This is a warm, thoughtful, helpful workbook and recordings set. I love that Dr. Saltzman utilizes best practices in stress reduction for children, including those components of mindfulness that are science-supported and public school-appropriate, to create a secular, age-appropriate program for children. The workbook provides tools and guidelines for delivering the program in a variety of settings, including use at home. The recordings are helpful, and those for young children just precious. Be ...more

Recommends it for: Anyone who works with children
Every teacher should have this book in their box of tools. Dr. Amy writes her curriculum in detail and shares her vast experience of teaching mindfulness to children/teens. The curriculum includes many, easy to implement, practices to use with children. Her CD’s are also very helpful in presenting mindfulness practices. Each week builds upon the previous week, and children gradually begin to understand how they can use mindfulness in their lives. They become more aware of responding rather than ...more
