Full speed ahead for school study

There’s plenty happening in our school study at present. The follow-up of the first participating school classes is currently underway, two new sixth classes have started and approximately 150 teachers have received an overview of plans and practical mindfulness exercises such as breathing techniques, ‘raisin exercise’ and body scanning.

New base for research on mindfulness

The Mindfulness and Compassion Center for Research and Education (MCC) is a new research and knowledge platform from Scania primary healthcare and Lund University that analyses the effects of mindfulness and compassion on mental, physical and social health.
