I am grateful to be in the second summer of bringing mindfulness practices into the classroom of kindergarten, first and second graders at Ole Miss as part of the Horizons National program.  We have Mindful Mondays in which we practice getting to know our breath, finding our still quiet place within, sharing heartfulness with ourselves and others, smiling yoga, and tuning our attention to the sound of the mindfulness bell.  The light in their faces is extraordinary.
