I co-founded a school that teaches kids mindfulness practices to help them set international swimming records, such as a 42-mile open-ocean relay swim. Their accomplishments were featured on NBC Nightly News. AMA
I am John Allcock, Co-Founder and Director of Mindfulness at Sea Change Preparatory, a trailblazing academy that regularly incorporates the practice of mindfulness into its curriculum. I am also a Harvard-educated trial lawyer and the author of FORTY THINGS I WISH I’D TOLD MY KIDS, a title that explains the tenets of mindfulness in a way that is accessible to people of all ages. I studied and practiced mindfulness for over fifteen years prior to teaching these concepts to children with a wide range of abilities. I am continually in awe of how regular mindfulness practices have enabled and emboldened our kids to break world records, excel in academics, and achieve goals that were previously thought to be impossible. Ask me anything.
