"Meena Srinivasan's online course is one of the best online courses on mindfulness in education that I have ever taken. I read her book prior to taking the course and was impressed; then I re-read it during the course and it was terrific all over again! For me, Meena's book, course and teachings are my main resource for teaching mindfulness to students. My book has more sticky notes in it than any other book I own! I highly recommend taking Meena's online course and reading her book. Her lessons are easy to follow and she teaches with heart, compassion and years of experience." - Mariann Taigman, Registered and Licensed Occupational Therapist
