Creating Mindful and Compassionate Schools

In 2009 the Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) was established as a not-for-profit company by Richard Burnett and Chris Cullen, both school teachers and mindfulness practitioners, with the conviction that children and adolescents could benefit from learning mindfulness skills in the classroom.

There were no curricula teaching mindfulness skills available in the UK at that time so MiSP created .b (pronounced ‘dot-b’, which stands for stop and be) for 11-18 year olds.

The aim of MiSP is to improve the resilience and wellbeing of all young people to enhance their school career and to support them throughout life. MiSP remains the leading provider of mindfulness programs for young people in the UK. For more information please click on
