This personalized approach fosters engagement and maximizes the impact of the mindfulness practice.
- Cultivating Shared Experiences
Through small, diverse group settings, MIEA creates an environment where students can relate to one another’s experiences of unease and find a sense of shared understanding. This community aspect fosters connection and enhances the learning journey.
