Meena_First Look at Book.jpg

“As an accomplished international educator and dedicated mindfulness practitioner, Meena Srinivasan brings these two worlds together in this compelling book, showing how to embed mindfulness into teaching and life.  Meena’s current work implementing Social Emotional Learning in the Oakland public school district embodies her commitment to transforming our nation’s education system from the inside out.” —Congressman Tim Ryan, A Mindful Nation

Teach, Breathe, Learn is a practical guide helping teachers find their own unique path to deeper fulfillment and efficacy first in their own lives and then in their work. Meena is a precious ambassador of mindfulness, concretely showing us how to bring mindfulness to the ‘front lines’ of the classroom, the staffroom, and all throughout our day. The wisdom in this book is grounded in Meena’s personal experience of applying mindfulness and compassion to respond rather than react to situations, in order to nurture what is best in us and in our students and skillfully take care of difficult moments.” —Thich Nhat Hanh, Nobel Peace Prize Nominee
