 What is .b?


.b stands for “Stop, Breathe and Be!” This simple act of mindfulness provides the kernel of the nine session .b mindfulness course for schools. Written by three experienced classroom teachers and mindfulness practitioners, Richard Burnett, Chris Cullen and Chris O’Neil, .b is carefully crafted to engage everyone, including the most cynical of student audiences. It is taught with striking visuals, film clips and activities that bring mindfulness to life without losing the precision, expertise and integrity of classic mindfulness teaching.

What are the aims of
.b?
At the most simple level
.b is an awareness-raising exercise to give all students a taste of mindfulness so that they know about it and can return to it later in life if they choose to do so. However, for many pupils the course can lead to immediate and striking results: they feel happier, calmer and more fulfilled; they can concentrate better; they have a toolkit to deal with stress and anxiety.

Why does the Government want to teach mindfulness in schools?

Mindfulness is a simple open non-religious approach that trains the mind to be more focussed  and clear allowing  one to cope better with the stresses of everyday life.
