Meditation instead of detention. It's working.
Baltimore Maryland's Andres (Andy) Gonzales and his friends Ali & Atman started Holistic Life Foundation. They bring meditation into schools and it’s replaced detention! Over 7K students per week learn to center in, and forgo violence. “Mindful Moment Room”, the oasis in a school. Results speak for themselves... three years with zero suspensions. The kids are growing up through the program and returning to help the younger generation. Kudos to Andy, Ali & Atman – you are indeed the A team.
The publisher of Mindful Magazine wrote, “Andy, Atman and Ali’s work should be a model for communities across the country.” Amen.
And there's more.....
Andy discussed this program with Alana Light as the #GoodNews of the week segment. You'll want to listen to this interview.
