The Mindfulness Ambassador Program (MAP) has been designed to equip participants with tools and skills based in social and emotional intelligence and secular mindfulness. The core of this program is centered around 12 universal principles that help individuals deepen self-inquiry, train attention, help identify and regulate emotions, manage stress and help build healthy interactions. Participants explore and experience the best learning of neuroscience and contemplative practices in an engaging environment. Fundamental to the design of this program are the integration of universal themes, quotes, dialogue prompts and practices intended to inspire openhearted conversation and encourage self-reflection, perspective taking and critical thinking.
About Social & Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning (SEL) benefits all students, of every background. It comprises specific skills and competencies that students and adults need in order to set goals, manage behavior, build relationships, and process and remember information. Using the curriculum of Mindfulness Without Borders, this evidence based program boosts the development of essential skills that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life.

“I was delighted to join the Mindful Ambassador Program led by Erin Covert, the founder of Studio for Mindfulness. I work in a pretty stressful and high pressure environment and struggle with incorporating daily mindful rituals into my routine. The foundation of the course opened up my eyes to ways I can incorporate mindfulness into my everyday life — even when I’m eating (which was one of my favorite parts of the class!). I really enjoyed the structure of the course and the community that was created as a result. Not only would I consider taking another MAP course myself, but I would also do this in the corporate setting to help my team incorporate more mindful rituals into their daily routines. Not only was the MAP course very enjoyable, but Erin was an absolute delight. She guided all participants through each class with the perfect balance of ease and encouragement.”
