Mindfulness is a particular way of paying attention non-judgmentally to the present moment which can facilitate a greater understanding of oneself and others. Outward Bound has incorporated mindfulness-based activities into its programming for decades through challenge, solo experiences, reflection, communication tools, adventure and fun.
The Omaha Outward Bound School is taking it a step further through breath and body awareness and other creative activities in order to create spaces between stimulus and response, develop self-regulation and compassion, and the capacity for thoughtful decision-making and action.
Our instructors and administrators have gone a step further to complete the Mindful Educator Essentials course to ensure we are engaging in evidence-based best practices in mindfulness program delivery.
