"Mindfulness ... a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique."
Riverview began our Mindfulness Program in the fall of 2014 with a 5 minute meditation at the beginning of each school day. Some student's also use audio CD's in their dorms to help quiet their minds and center themselves whenever they choose.
..."we imagined how amazing it would be to teach our students to calm their minds, center their bodies and ultimately lifts their spirits!" - Riverview teacher
"Don't worry about right or wrong. Dont judge. Just be." -- Riverview student
