Youth Engagement, Emotion Science
& Mindfulness academy

We are launching a career track training and support academy. Student interns and residents will participate in live academy class, remote Mindful Schools classes, on the job training in our school programs and will help organize and lead our summer camp.

Sponsor our students

Our interns at Benson and our students at Monroe have designed "Uncage Your Heart and Mind" T-shirts and would love to also have curriculum books. Your gift of $35 would make that possible.

Mindfulness Book Sharing!

Take a book, bring a book, either or both

These mindfulness books will be shelved for sharing at

Introduction to Mindfulness

Mindfulness Community Collaboration Camp

​​The Wisdom House is a nonprofit dedicated to supporting and growing the mindfulness community. People of all ages and from all walks of life find clarity, wisdom and contentment from the practices of mindfulness. Today we know more than ever about the science behind these practices and their positive effect on emotional well-being, ​health, relationships, and life choices. With confidence that mindfulness can serve our community in uniquely profound ways, Wisdom House supports and funds mindfulness programs and teachers to cultivate a thriving and expanding mindfulness community.

Aaron Weiner presented at the Nebraska Mediation Association's Annual Meeting on April 12. Wisdom House will make available copies of the book, "Managing Conflict Mindfully" at our camp. The book incorporates Mindfulness and Internal Family Systems with traditional mediation techniques. Continuing Legal Education Credits are expected.

Bad News & Good News
We received the sad news that Mindful Schools has gone out of business and gave its course certificate holders until June 1 to download content. The good news is that we have downloaded the content, including videos, of five of the courses. We are very proud that we helped more than 350 educators, including 10 "Year Long" leaders, be licensed to teach Mindful Schools curriculum.  We will gather during the Mindful Community Collaboration Camp on Wednesday, July 31 from 7-8:30pm to discuss how this resource can be best preserved and utilized.
