Everybody Present, $16.95
Everybody Present demonstrates how mindfulness can transform not just children but the adults who teach them. Using real-world examples, Didde and Nikolaj Flor Rotne present a mode of classroom engagement proven to reduce stress and create an environment for thoughtful learning.
With stories, exercises, and sample practices, Everybody Present helps educators enjoy their time with children, reduce conflict, and foster strong relationships with both colleagues and students. Educators are encouraged to build their own mindfulness practice and are offered the tools to create mindful learning environments.
Nikolaj Flor Rotne has an MA in Educational Psychology, and Didde Flor Rotne is a primary classroom teacher and meditation teacher in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh. The Flor Rotnes are the authors of three best-selling books in Danish and founders of Denmark's Educational Mindfulness Program. They live in Lagebaek, Denmark with their three sons.
