Whole Wellness: Mind-Body-Spirit and Energy Medicine
Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education dalailamacenter.org/about/heart-mind
Heart-Mind well-being refers to creating a balance between educating the mind and educating the heart. The focus of most formal education systems is on teaching cognitive skills such as reading, writing and arithmetic. While there is a great focus in our society on academic achievement, a growing body of research demonstrates the positive impacts of social and emotional learning. In fact, research shows that heart and mind learning are highly interconnected, and that improving children’s social and emotional skills directly benefits their ability to learn and apply cognitive skills.
