The RETHiNK Kit is an elegantly designed, easy to implement and highly relevant series of mini-activities helping teens to become better connected to their feelings, their thoughts and those of their peers. Grounded in breathing exercises, each learning module takes young people through a well thought out exercise to help promote social and emotional well-being. The kit's activities are a useful asset for any classroom, youth program or health care setting.

WOW, WOW, WOW! I am almost speechless!! Loved consistency of the ‘What’, How & Why and the ‘to the point’, lesson requirements needed to implement the activity. This tool would have taken my breath away if I didn’t have the mindfulness skills to remember to breathe and exhale!!!

I absolutely LOVE it. I love the consistency and flow of the different models. Great for youth. Bravo, Bravo.

Learning to live with presence lets us go beneath the chatter of thinking that so often keeps us from feeling peace and clarity. Theo Koffler and her team have created a wonderful digital world on their website that empowers you to systematically learn how to become more present in life. What you get from these teachings in being more mindful, more awake, more present, is not only more balance in your emotions and thinking, but also enhancements in the health of both your body and your relationships with others, and your self! Not bad for simply leaning to show up in life. Try it and see for yourself!

The RETHiNK Kit is a must have for any middle/secondary teacher looking to integrate mindfulness based SEL into their instruction. Mindfulness Without Borders has created an incredibly accessible resource with beautifully designed learning modules and inspiring content—it makes me want to return to the classroom just so I can use this toolkit!

RETHINK is a user-friendly resource that provides educators with the tools and strategies they need to support resilience and compassion in their students. As a former classroom teacher, I found the materials visually compelling and the directions clear and concise. The audio and video resources are outstanding and provide another modality for teaching these important concepts to youth — Mindfulness Without Borders has achieved something truly special.

Accessible, thought-provoking, and most importantly a deep resonance with student experience. My students are more self-aware and peaceful with these regular practices as part of their education.
RETHiNK is the perfect companion for educators! It's easy to use and the conversation starters help create more respectful classroom environments, laying the foundation for deeper student learning.
