"It is fun to have the memory of walking into your classroom with the kids sitting around you on the floor breathing in positive self-care and healing."
-Karen A Para in a Brain Awakes Classroom
"Brain Awakes helps children develop an awareness of their own mental processes so that they may succeed academically and develop prosocial skills, such as empathy, compassion, and patience. Brain Awakes is a much-needed reference for elementary school teachers. It isn’t another program or curriculum to teach, but a set of activities that can easily be integrated into the school day. The strategies in Brain Awakes will help students become more focused when completing schoolwork and enhance social connectedness."
-Tracy Daniel PhD Child Psychologist
Brain Awakes strives to empower children with the ability to recognize and regulate their emotions, to strengthen social-emotional skills needed for life and learning, and to cultivate a more compassionate community.
We believe in creating a brighter tomorrow for our youth inside and out. Beginning with the development of inner-understanding and empathy for others, Brain Awakes then moves towards relationships in the community, problem solving, and accepting differences. Furthermore, Brain Awakes instills a growth mindset in our children so that they may conquer their goals through optimism, motivation, focus, and perseverance.
Our shared devotion to this mission will yield a needed sense of awareness while inspiring a more compassionate and connected community-one activity at a time.
