Character Building through Mindfulness

Our Mindfulness Programme Offers Students a Holistic Education

In Global Sevilla school, we not only offer academic excellence but also provide a strong character-building programme through mindfulness.  Mindfulness is the basic human ability to be fully present, to be aware of where we are and what we are doing, and not be overly reactive or overwhelmed by what is going on around us.

Mindfulness is evidence-based. Both science and experience demonstrate the positive benefits it can bring to our health, happiness, work and relationships.

In Global Sevilla schools, our mindfulness programme focuses on cultivating universal human qualities. Everyone can benefit from it. We do not require anyone to change their beliefs or practices.

We believe that mindfulness is a way of living. It brings awareness and caring into everything we do.

Here at Global Sevilla School, we do very much the same things as when we are at home—walking, sitting, studying, playing, listening, eating etc.—except that now we learn to do them mindfully, with an awareness and the consciousness of what we are doing.

We bring our bodies and minds into harmony while we wash the dishes, drive the car or take our morning shower.

We practise cultivating peace and joy within and around us, as a gift for all whom we love and care for. We cultivate solidity in our deepest aspiration and enjoy freedom from our fears, misunderstandings and our sufferings.

                              How is Mindfulness Beneficial to Our Children?

                              Research on mindfulness shows that with regular practice, it can alter the structure of the brain to help adults and children to learn more effectively. Furthermore, mindfulness promotes an attitude of kindness and open curiosity,
                              while teaching children and adults alike to feel compassion and empathy for others. 

                              It also provides an opportunity for children to just ‘be’; a moment out of their busy lives to enable them to think and reflect.

                              Mindfulness strengthens resilience and decision-making abilities, builds character leading to academic success, develops positive social skills—such as giving, compassion, and self-control, instil joy and optimism in classroom learning, and creates peer-to-peer harmony.

                              Our Mindfulness Programme

                              We integrate our mindfulness programme into our curriculum from kindergarten until high school. Our days start with a silent moment to help the students relax, be completely aware and fully awake to the present moment.
                              Students also participate in mindful eating during their break time, which helps to develop their sense of gratitude. Once a week, students will also have a mindful sitting session where they can practise focusing on their breathing.

                              This programme encourages our children to slow down and be truly alive, present, and at one with those around them, and with what they are doing. The simple act of breathing can help them focus and enable them to complete the task at hand.
