Welcome to The Well.
Wellness practices are often quite simple. Yet our busy lives may convince us otherwise and keep us moving quickly past grounding practices that keep us mentally, physicially, emotionally and spiritually equipped to live our fullest lives.
The programs of The Well elegantly combine aspects of mindfulness, arts, social-emotional learning, play, movement and poetry into practices for regular use within schools, hospitals, and communities. We love collaboration so our best work is with others and we are delighted to partner with world-class arts, social service, education and health care providers.
Read on to learn about bringing City Silence, True Body Project or Mindful Music and its related programs to you.
City Silence supports individuals who wish to hold space for their own meditation/mindfulness practice and invite others to join.
- A space in our Participate Listing
- Promotional support via social media, boosted in your area to help you build traction.
- Tips on how to create a steady following.
- Materials, like this poster, to help you promote your City Silence locally.
Whether you participate in or host a City Silence gathering, we hope you will come to appreciate how the practice of connecting mind to body, connecting human to human, can deeply enhance your life and the health of our communities.
Imagine an entire school -- students, teachers and administrators -- taking time each morning to turn inward together, listen to a brief mindfulness prompt and world class music.
That's Mindful Music Moments, now in more than 170 PreK-12 schools, camps and social service organizations daily and climbing, touching 106,000+ students in a calming and focusing ritual.
True Body Project (TBP) was The Well's first program and provides a depth of experience in trauma-informed, social-emotional, culturally literate work. Currently, TBP offers Leadership Trainings, workshops and curricula so that individuals can bring this work to schools and organizations in their area. While TBP still serves girls and women, the curriculum has been up-dated to be gender neutral and has been implemented with boys and girls, men and women from K-80+. TBP work is also designed to work across cultures and has been experienced by individuals and groups from around the world.
