classes Mind Power
Why MindUP?

Mind Power teaches social and emotional learning skills that link cognitive neuroscience, positive psychology and mindful awareness training utilizing a brain centric approach.

Right now, we have created a society in which little Johnnie has learned how to read before getting out pre-school, but still hasn’t learned how to stop bitting his brother. And Sarah has perfected her multiplication tables, using flash cards and rote memory, in ever earlier and earlier grades, but has not learn how to be aware of other people’s feelings.

Instead of focusing on academic concepts, Mind Power course is build around values and we encourage children to discover answers for themselves. Each lesson offers fun and memorable strategies for children to learn how to:

  • Access their own feelings, interests, values and strengths;
  • Act without self interest;
  • Build resilience to stress;
  • Develop a positive mind-set;
  • Focus their attention;
  • Improve self-regulation skills;
  • Maintain health relationships based on cooperation and self-confidence;
  • Solve conflict without violence;
  • Use a variety of considerations to make choices;
  • Understand different perspectives and empathising with others;

Our intention and purpose is to encourage children, from the earliest age until the end of schooling, to explore these values and to learn how to use them, apply them, functioning them - and even question them.
