MiEN was established in 2001 by a group of educators, students of Thich Nhat Hanh, Zen Master and peace activist. Hanh was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr..
We see mindfulness as an antidote to the growing stress, conflict, and confusion in educational settings, as well as, an invaluable gift to give students.
