PeaceBox benefits students, teachers and faculty by providing on-site customizable mindfulness education, training and practice. Programs can be tailored for students or faculty and staff in order to benefit the health and wellness of an entire school by reducing stress and fatigue, increasing energy and mental awareness and improving behavioral issues.
PeaceBox delivers on-site customized mindfulness education, training and practice for schools interested in helping their students learn healthy ways to reduce stress, increase mental clarity and improve overall performance and wellness. Meditation practice in the classroom has amazing benefits including providing students coping mechanisms in a stressful environment.
Here are the primary ways we partner with schools:
A few benefits of mindfulness for school members include:
If you’re interested in bringing mindfulness training to your school or bringing your students and faculty to us, please contact PeaceBox here or call 512-484-0811 for a consultation and to get started with your customized experience.
While all students can benefit from mindfulness training, many schools need financial support to help them achieve this goal. Corporations and private donors can bring PeaceBox to a school through sponsorships. A list of schools currently seeking sponsorship include:
ANN RICHARDS SCHOOL FOR YOUNG WOMEN LEADERS
PeaceBox visited students, faculty and staff at Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders in the spring of 2017 and fall of 2018 to deliver mindfulness training and guided meditation. These tools have helped both students and staff to manage stress and anxiety when it comes to school.
Don’t take it from us! Hear from a student at the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders in Austin, Texas as she shares her first experience with mindfulness practice inside the PeaceBox (watch video, right). Also, check out our blog to learn more about what students at Ann Richards School are saying about their mindfulness experience.
WESTLAKE HIGH SCHOOL
In Spring 2018, 14 counselors and teachers took part in a six-week-long Mindfulness@School training program with PeaceBox. This program, funded by the Westlake Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), was uniquely tailored for faculty and staff to provide them with tools to reduce stress and fatigue and increase energy and mental awareness. Due to the success of this program, PeacecBox returned to Westlake High School in the fall 2018 to introduce these tools to students.
Schools like Ann Richards School and Westlake High School are always looking for corporate sponsors to fund their next Mindfulness@School training program so that students learn these tools. Companies looking for opportunities to invest in an important community cause such as reducing stress in schools, should contact PeaceBox. Businesses can partner with PeaceBox to sponsor a Mindfulness@School training and give students and teachers a gift that keeps on giving. See “Sponsor a School” to inquire.
Select and Customize Your Program
PeaceBox: “Mindfulness On The Move” offers flexible training options to accommodate any budget. As our tagline implies, we come to you (with or without our mobile PeaceBox) and support school staff and students with stress-management tools they can take with them for life, whether at work or at home, or anywhere “on the move.” Once staff and students learn a few essentials and experience the benefits of mindfulness practice, they have access to an enhanced way of being they can take with them for life.
The first step for all of these offerings is a consultation. Please fill out our form here or contact us at 512-484- 0811 to discuss your interest, questions, and desired outcomes for your school.

This is an eight-module course designed to cultivate a wide range of mindfulness skills aimed at enhancing attention, self-awareness, concentration, performance, communication, mastery and self-care.
The 8 modules are:
Module 1: Mindfulness at School (An Introduction)
Module 2: Presence with Self
Module 3: Awareness and Calm
Module 4: Presence with Others
Module 5: Empathy and Compassion
Module 6: Presence in Community
Module 7: Emotional Intelligence
Module 8: Mindfulness on the Move (Best Practices for sustaining results)
Made clear and pragmatic through direct experience, Mindfulness@School optimizes one’s own inner resources for learning, growing, healing and for integrating mindfulness into the workplace.
This program can be delivered in eight 50-minute modules or in a series of four 2-hour sessions over the course of multiple weeks. While the training can be delivered intensively over 1 or 2 days, it is recommended to spread out the lessons over time for best results. Each of the lessons are accompanied by additional discussion points and activities, which ideally are practiced between training sessions.
