About Us

Illumination Institute is an Orange County, California-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization promoting mindfulness in primary and secondary education. We train teachers in mindfulness techniques and provide teachers with our turn-key mindfulness curriculum, which can be implemented directly into their classrooms.

Our program ranges from a one-semester course of 16 weekly lessons to a full-year program with 32 weekly lessons. The weekly lessons can be as short as 10 minutes or as long as 50 minutes, entirely depending on the time available and the unique needs and preferences of the teachers and the schools.

We strongly believe in helping teachers improve their own wellbeing, and our teacher training courses are designed to help teachers with self-care techniques, as well as guidance on classroom applications. In our mindful classrooms, teachers practice mindfulness along with their students. There is substantial evidence of the beneficial effects of mindfulness in education. We truly believe that mindfulness can help students and teachers focus better, regulate emotions and reduce stress.
