For the Master’s project Eva assisted Coastal Grove Charter School in bringing ten weekly Mindfulness lessons into the second and sixth grade classroom during the 2019 – 2020 school year. Coastal Grove Charter school is a K - 8th Grade school in a rural area in Northern California located on traditional Wiyot Land. Studies find that youth benefit from learning Mindfulness in terms of improved cognitive outcomes, stress reduction, social-emotional skills, and well-being. These benefits may lead to long-term improvements in the life course development.
