LifeSchool is a comprehensive, science-based program that supports skillful and creative living.
Designed for schools and education systems as well as companies and nonprofits, LifeSchool is focused on developing peaceful, creative, productive environments. This experiential model provides education about the physiological and psychological effects of stress, and teaches mind-body skills to mitigate symptoms, promote relaxation, and engage people in their life with a new perspective and new lifestyle skills to enhance physical and emotional resilience.
The LifeSchool curriculum teaches the scientific foundation of mind-body medicine, including the biology of stress and relaxation responses of the autonomic nervous system, neuroplasticity, trauma, positive psychology, nutrition and mindful movement. Practical techniques to promote well-being include: breathing, meditation, mindfulness, yoga, relaxation methods, guided imagery, journaling, narrative writing, movement, creative drawing and nutrition. The goals are increased self-awareness, self-expression and self-regulation.
Group support provides an opportunity to explore meaning and purpose in life and to connect with others in community. The healing power of sharing a common experience in the context of a facilitated group has been well documented to relieve stress, decrease physical and emotional pain, restore function and thus enhance quality of life.
An important goal of these groups is to inspire and empower people to make lifestyle changes, learning to manage stress through mindful living practices. The LifeSchool approach trains the mind, shapes the brain and holds the promise of living life fully with more equanimity and less stress, more meaning and less disconnect. The ultimate goal is to live a more peaceful, resilient and loving life.
