Speaking of Mindfulness
Guest: Mona Antwan – Founder of Mindfulness Leader
On this episode we are speaking mindfulness with my friend and fellow Harpo co-worker Mona Antwan. Mona is the founder of Mindfulness Leader, the first of its kind after school program and high school elective in the City of Chicago to offer a 10-week, 92 hour curriculum, in under resourced schools and communities.
The program teaches students life skills through the art of mindfulness. The 23-core principle curriculum helps young leaders develop emotional intelligence through an interactive and project based course load. Mona has excellent advice to people of all ages on how to tap into our higher selves and simple ways to make room for mindfulness in our lives.
