Laura Bakosh is a mindfulness teacher, researcher, and co-founder of Inner Explorer, a non-profit organization that brings mindfulness-based social-emotional learning (MBSEL) programming to preschool through high school classrooms. She was trained as a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) instructor through the Center for Mindfulness at the University of Massachusetts. She has practiced and studied mindfulness for 27 years. She began teaching the skills to children 13 years ago and quickly realized that it was difficult for children to commit to a daily practice at home, and it was difficult for many teachers to lead such practices in the classroom. This was the foundational insight that led to the development of Inner Explorer, an audio-guided program that made it easy for teachers and students (and families) to practice together each day. Laura believes that daily mindfulness practice is the most important education equity and social justice initiative of our time as it can help to close the achievement gap, break the cycle of poverty, and improve wellbeing.
