GB601 Montessori and Mindfulness - Wholesale
This book is from the presentation at the International Montessori Congress in Prague, Czech Republic in 2017. It is valuable for parents of a newborn, and teachers of children from preschool through high school. Mindfulness is an ancient practice in the East, a great need for health and happiness in the West, and an everyday practice in Montessori schools. The author tells her own story of 50+ years of meditation and working in the Montessori field, and gives detailed suggestions for both parents and teachers to aid the development of this skill in themselves and in the children they live with. “Mindfulness Practices in Education: Montessori’s Approach” by Dr. Angeline Lillard, is included in this book.
"The author has a deep and broad understanding of Montessori and life long experience with meditation. Supplemented by wonderful pictures and stories from worldwide travels, this book gives a sound portrayal of how mindfulness manifests in this most profound and wise approach to children's education. Many thanks!"
—Angeline Lillard, Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia
