Yesterday, Zones of Peace was honored to recognize Mindfulness Through Movement for their honor from the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia naming their participating schools as Zones of Peace. The award ceremony was held St. Rose of Lima Philadelphia which will share the distinction and fly the banner along with several other Philadelphia schools.
Mindfulness through Movement is addressing a root cause of violence by assisting in the education of urban children. This small nonprofit organization offers mindfulness and yoga programs taught by certified instructors to children in thirteen public, private, parochial and charter elementary and middle schools in Philadelphia. The program is based upon the belief that in order to learn in the school setting, children need to be able to clear their minds of all those things that are out of their control.
Thank you to everyone who attended this wonderful banner presentation!
