Mindfulness is a practice that has proliferated across many institutions – schools, Psychologists’ and Physicians’ office, and corporate staff rooms.  Research has demonstrated its’ value in decreasing anxiety and depression, enhancing creativity, and fostering compassion. At the core of Mindfulness-based intervention is training in ‘quieting’ the chatter that is constantly running through our heads (through meditation), so that we can hear that ‘still soft voice’ within. This is the voice that is at our core as Jews, as Citizens of the World, and as a reflection of the Divine. Unfortunately, in our rush to ‘get ahead’, we often drown out that inner voice.   Meditation is a means to reclaim that inner connection.   A description of how that was undertaken in a Winnipeg High School is offered.
