Other Free Movie Screening—Room to Breathe @ Nunpa Theater__Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 6:30 (change in date due to weather, previously April 2), The movie ROOM TO BREATH is a surprising story of transformation as struggling kids in a San Francisco public middle school are introduced to the practice of mindfulness meditation. “Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Mindfulness is a form of social and emotional learning that can be described as a particular way of paying attention in order to bring awareness to one’s experience. The need for mindfulness in our education system is clear. Stress levels in students are high; pressure from within the school system as well as from parents for increased test scores takes a toll on both students and teachers. There are increasing numbers of suspensions and dropouts; kids are disengaged from school and don’t even want to be in school to learn. Many problems schools face are the inability of students to focus or control their impulses, stress and anxiety in both students and teachers, and a lack of connection between students and their school community. Discussion to follow about how Little Wound School is utilizing the program. For more info contact: Alicia Mousseau @ 484-3625 or
