The Community subscription allows entire school districts access to daily mindfulness, plus provides access to the @HOME App, so families can practice together at home.
Our team is here to help you integrate daily mindfulness into your school community. We have created a variety of resources to support educators, school administrators, students, and their families. Mail us firstname.lastname@example.org to know more.

Simple and Sustainable
Connects Home and School
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:
We had just started IE a few months prior to the marathon bombing in Boston. Third grade was particularly traumatised as that was the grade that lost Martin. By continuing to participate in IE each day after the bombing, IE served as good trauma first-aid for several reasons: Maintaining familiar routines and rituals Ongoing teaching of calm down strategies. A safe space and sense of security. Helped teachers and students with self-care."

Inner Explorer has empowered our students to handle stress, anxiety, and negative emotions in a constructive manner. The 5-10 minute guided audio practices are long enough to provide immediate positive effects and short enough as to not disrupt instructional time. Teachers have said that they themselves have used the mindfulness strategies to reduce their own stress. Inner Explorer is simple to use, empowers students and teachers to self-regulate their emotions, and their team is always readily available to answer questions/address concerns.

Inner Explorer is very user friendly and easy to implement. We have seen a dramatic increase in the positive behaviors of the students in the classrooms where the program is done with fidelity. The investment of 5-10 minutes daily, comes back to you exponentially! Programs such as this should be required in all schools!

Last year we piloted one class with Inner Explorer’s mindfulness program. The one class who used it was the calmest class with the fewest incident reports (0 versus an average of 25 in the other classrooms!) and had the highest academic gains in reading (initially 10 of 28 students were below grade level, at the end of the year 0 of 28 were below, including several special needs students!). We are expanding into all the classrooms this year.

This is my 3rd year using your program with my students and I continue to be amazed at how much the few minutes of calm reflection helps them throughout the day. Kids are more focused on their tasks, are much nicer to one another and can regulate their emotions better than many adults I know. During the COVID crisis, we have been able to craft videos using our IE practices so students are able to practice at home and use the new family app too.

I was called to a school this morning to work with a teacher who was struggling with anxiety and feeling overwhelmed. When I arrived she was in tears and unable to drive home. We did an Inner Explorer session and the transformation of the teacher’s demeanor was amazing. After we debriefed and talked about some strategies to help her she was calm and able to think clearly about areas of her life she needed support.

This year would have been far more challenging for me had it not been for our daily mindfulness exercises. I was more present for my students and just happier. It was my first year teaching high school after nearly a decade in elementary schools. I was nervous about how I would relate to my students and mindfulness turned out to be a great way to connect with them. My first period students shared that doing mindfulness in the morning helped them get through the stress day.
