About: Why More than Mindfulness?
Rainbow Institute is an arm of RCS that seeks to inspire a holistic education movement through transformative learning experiences, resources and research. The work of RI is inspired by the holistic educational model known as the Rainbow Seven Domains approach. This approach values healthy development in all the domains and considers the spiritual domain the elixir that breathes life into the other developmental domains. RI strives to help individuals, educators and institutions nurture the identities of all community members by inviting the SACRED into the school experience.

School based mindfulness programs are becoming increasingly more widespread in private and public schools throughout our country. Research suggests that these programs bolster mental health and well being and have the capacity to improve academic achievement. The More than Mindfulness (MTM) Conference workshops will highlight ways of integrate mindful practices into your school culture but will emphasize MORE than mindfulness by expanding these practices to include a wide variety of heart centered, social, emotional, and contemplative methods. The workshops will offer many transferrable lessons and resources to aid in establishing a transformative learning culture.

I am really excited to grow as a community with mindfulness in education. I loved meeting other people who have similar interests and passions. It was great to make new connections.
