Teaching Mindfulness to Children: An Interview with Susan Kaiser Greenland

Susan Kaiser Greenland is a former corporate attorney who began to practice meditation when her children were young as a way of coping with a family crisis. As she developed mindfulness awareness through this practice, not only did she survive the crisis, but she learned that it is possible to access inner peace and stillness, even when the world seems out of control.

She began teaching these practices to her children with success and is now the author of the book, The Mindful Child, which aims to help other parents and professionals teach mindfulness awareness practices to children. Susan is also the co-founder of the Inner Kids Foundation, a program dedicated to bringing mindful awareness practices to inner-city and underserved communities in Los Angeles. She blogs regularly for The Huffington Post and the book has been heavily covered in the media, including The New York Times, National Public Radio, and CBS News, among others.
