Come meet the founder of MindWise, Caitlin Krause, when she presents her new book, Mindful by Design.
Written for those looking to develop future-forward skills including innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and communication, Mindful by Design “is a guide to well-being, a practical resource, and a creative call-to-action, as Caitlin Krause helps readers to bridge the gap between prioritizing true connection and achieving it.”

Mindfulness is the building of three capacities: awareness, advancement, and authenticity. Built upon these facets, Mindful by Design provides 24 detailed practices for individuals and communities, including step-by-step embedded mindfulness exercises, ready to implement immediately. Where passion meets purpose, Mindful by Design empowers readers to start designing ways to transform mindsets and daily quality of life.
“Krause shares valuable strategies that will help any educator, coach, manager, or learning professional bring out the best in those they serve.”

“With the framework of the Three A’s — being Aware, Advancing, Authentic – Krause has crafted a wonderful book for educators that shares her teaching experience and deep inquiry as a scaffold for integrating mindfulness into the classroom. This book skillfully provides an informed and practical set of guidelines and exercises for designing mindful experiences for the benefit of teachers and students. ”

“In Mindful By Design, Caitlin Krause shares her passion for mindfulness and how it can be applied in our lives and in our classrooms. Through a wealth of examples, Caitlin brings mindfulness to life and helps her readers become more ‘aware, advancing and authentic.’ A needed resource for us all.”

“Mindful by Design is grounded in an ethic of care. To see what I mean, and if you just picked up this book wondering if it’s for you, flip through a few pages and read the many quotes of student’s voices. Caitlin has written a book that speaks to the heart of what teachers do in classrooms: create a safe culture of care where we all learn to listen to each other to understand.”

Certain books were “banned in Boston” at least as far back as 1651, when one William Pynchon wrote a book criticizing Puritanism.
