After years of collaboration, the Global MINDS Collective acquired Mindfulness Without Borders, a leading provider of best practices and evidenced-based programs on secular mindfulness and social emotional learning. The RETHiNK Kit came to fruition thanks to the hard work and dedication of a select members of the Mindfulness Without Borders team. An additional dose of gratitude to the many teachers, health professionals, mindfulness practitioners, researchers and young people who’ve informed and tested the activities in their respective communities.
