Mindful Guatemala, Antigua, Guatemala

Mindful Guatemala was founded by two expats in Guatemala, Heidi and Stephanie. The organization seeks to inspire, raise awareness and educate the Guatemalan population to live a full life, with peace and greater well-being, thus contributing to the global culture of sustainable peace. They address the Guatemalan at-risk population, providing courses and activities in Schools and educational centres.

The main programme of the organization is providing training to teachers who then become facilitators of the Mindfulness curriculum, to their students. The programmes consist in either a 8 weeks intervention programme or a year long 40 classes programme, depending on the commitment and desires of their partner institutions, providing educators with the tools they need to foster the development of emotional, social, and ethical intelligence for students and themselves.

Through the schools and charities they partner with, they have reached until now about 800 youth at risk, who have reported a higher capacity to cope with stress and strong emotions, increasing their well-being and positive relationships.
