“I have been using it in the classroom to help my students center themselves so they can think clearly. It not only helps them center themselves but it gives an overall calmness in the room. You have trained them well and they know just want to do. When I ring the bell the energy changes immediately to a calmer state.”

“I have used the bell and Mindfulness as a pre-writing activity to help my students think about what they are planning to write about. I have been amazed at how the ideas just start to flow. It helps them to stay centered and focused in their thoughts and their writing. I feel that because of this practice their writing has improved because they are more focused and centered.”
