The Benefits of Inner Explorer’s Evidence-Based Program:
When applied in a learning environment, mindfulness is shown to significantly improve school outcomes. Research demonstrates that the use of Inner Explorer resulted in 28% higher grades in Reading, Math, and Science, a 43% decrease in teacher stress, and a 60% decrease in behavioral issues.
Each practice incorporates key areas of social-emotional development, such as self-awareness, emotional regulation, social awareness, and responsible decision making. A cost-effective preventative mental health measure.
Inner Explorer is dedicated to supporting the mental health and well-being of school communities as we continue to navigate the implications of the pandemic. Here are a few of our latest resources:

Inner Explorer TM is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide mindfulness in schools for Early Learning-12 classrooms, helping children develop self-awareness, self-control, resilience and compassion. Each series contains 180 audio-guided practices that can be used every day by simply logging in and pressing play. Students and their teachers participate together in the brief (5-10 minute) daily practices. No prep, planning or curriculum changes required.
We’ve created our mindfulness in school programs the latest scientific research in cognitive neuroscience and developmental psychology. We’ve also fine-tuned the approach over the past five years with direct feedback and guidance from thousands of teachers, administrators and students. Our programs address the major challenges many school systems face, including academic performance, graduation rates, discipline problems, school climate and bullying. Additionally, our programs are simple to implement and cost effective, so they can be rolled out quickly to deliver significant improvements in student achievement. The Inner Explorer program does not require extensive outside training or facilitator. The “Press Play” format allows for immediate access to the program as teachers and students listen to the guided daily practice together. We offer a parent/caretaker “Tune In” so they can listen to the same program as their children each day. This allows families to not only practice together, but also bridges home and school. Most importantly, our programs help children become more compassionate, responsible and productive citizens.
Best suited for large scale implementation, the Community option provides the opportunity to practice daily mindfulness in the classroom, across single schools or the entire district, and with families via the @Home family mobile app. learn more
