Lafayette's Peace of Mind Program Featured in Documentary about Mindfulness

On Wednesday, October 8, three filmmakers spent the day at Lafayette interviewing students and staff and filming Peace Classes for a documentary about mindfulness.   They were so impressed with our Peace of Mind program and they were really impressed with our students.  The kids did a beautiful job of demonstrating how we practice mindfulness in Peace class (even with cameras rolling and microphones hanging over their heads) and they were able to articulate how they practice mindfulness outside of Peace Class. They talked about using mindfulness to help them deal with anger at siblings, with the stress of test-taking, to help them focus while playing sports, to be better friends, and to be kinder to themselves and others.  The filmmakers couldn't get enough of our amazing students here at Lafayette.  Click on this link to find out more about this upcoming documentary and stay posted for more information about when it will be finished.
