- Jack Kornfield, PhD, bestselling author of A Path with Heart
"Bolstered by the authors' years of meditation practice and real-world experience, this excellent book is a tract on how to navigate the ups and downs of daily life that not only supports readers in their work with adolescents but in their own lives as well. "
- Susan Kaiser Greenland, author of The Mindful Child, Mindful Games, and the Inner Kids Program
"In a time when teens face real inner and outer challenges, and quick-fix, faux mindfulness offerings are increasingly popular, this book is a true gift. Every page is infused with the authors' deep personal mindfulness practices and their years of experience in sharing these practices with diverse youth. "
- Amy Saltzman, M.D., Director of Still Quiet Place, Director of the Association for Mindfulness in Education
"In a world with many wonderful books on an important topic, this one stands above the crowd with practical advice built on hard won experience. Brensilver, Hardy, and Sofer empower not just adolescents but their caregivers and communities as well. A gift to mindfulness educators everywhere. "
- Christopher Willard, PsyD, author of Growing Up Mindful and Alphabreaths , part time faculty at Harvard Medical School
"Teaching Mindfulness to Empower Adolescents is a gorgeous gift in learning how to raise a generation of empaths. I am so grateful for the lesson in ‘building relationships, leaving space, and establishing personal relevance.’ As a parent and individual, I felt deep support and a renewed understanding in the most important teachings and practices a person can have. I particularly loved this book's guidance on the reminder to ‘make space to listen.’ Thank you to JoAnna Hardy, Matthew Brensilver, and Oren Jay Sofer for bringing such essential teaching to light."
- Laura Dern, Actor and Producer
"In Teaching Mindfulness to Adolescents, the ‘what’ (curriculum) is important, but not as important as the ‘how’ (quality of the teacher’s presence and mindset). This book shows the way to give life to mindfulness teaching with authenticity, ethics, and integrity―always starting with, and coming back to, the teacher’s own personal mindfulness practice. I highly recommended it to all adults who wants to bring mindfulness to youth, and to all adults who care deeply about young people."
- Dzung X. Vo, M.D., author of The Mindful Teen: Powerful Skills to Help You Handle Stress One Moment at a Time
"This book is a cutting-edge resource for any youth professional wanting to share mindfulness with teens. Brensilver, Hardy, and Sofer offer a skillful, innovative, and developmentally tailored approach that promotes youth receptivity and buy-in. Sharing mindfulness is much more than teaching techniques, and this book will give you everything you need; from the practice of cultivating relationships, to working with resistance, to tough conversations about the issues teens struggle with. I recommend this book without hesitation."
- Sam Himelstein, PhD, author of Trauma-Informed Mindfulness with Teens: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals
