Pause In Our Schools

Teaching Life-Long Skills to Help Our Children Thrive

 

Our children are facing greater demands on their time and attention than ever before. It is critical that we not only teach them reading, writing and mathematics, but we also need to teach them critical social and emotional skills to meet the demands of their ever-changing world so that they not only cope, but thrive.

 

Teachers, administrators and parents are also feeling more stress than ever before.  We bring mindfulness to the whole school community with workshops and training for students, teachers, parents and administrators.

Testimonials

"Cheryl presented multiple workshops at our company and was incredibly professional, engaging and warm. She is truly a leader in teaching mindfulness and made everything clear and accessible. Within the first week, I was implementing her mindfulness strategies into my life at work and at home. Cheryl uses her real life experience as a mother and working professional to really relate to the everyday struggles of balancing work and home life. I already feel less stress, less distracted and can find a bit of happiness in ordinary things everyday. Thank you!"

"My students now have strategies to cope with stress and an awesome awareness of the ways stress impacts their mind and body."

“ Every now and then you come across a class or a person who helps you to be a better person. Cheryl offers just that. I am a better person because of all the things that I have learned- I am a better spouse, a better mother, a better friend, a better co-worker, and actually even more compassionate with myself. And what’s the best part? That I got all this by simply learning how to slow down and calm down. I will be forever grateful! Taking the beginning meditation class is the single most important thing I have done for myself in the last decade. I can honestly say that my family and I are all happier because of my taking this one step to learn how to be calmer and more mindful. ”
