Mindfulness First is an Arizona 501(c)3 non-profit, and our mission is to offer scientifically-informed programs based in Mindful Awareness and Social-Emotional Learning which provide children and adults with tools to manage stress and navigate life’s challenges.
The Mindfulness First Community Circle
Our Community Circle is an online meeting space for Mindful Educators to network, learn and grow together. Once a month we meet online via Zoom (meetings are recorded for your convenience) and at other times we talk online via our private forum. Our monthly online meetings always include a guest speaker who shares about their field of expertise; CEUs are usually available.
