“Finally, a gentle, meaningful, and child centered approach to teaching kids the importance of self-awareness and regulation. There has never been a more pressing time for this work to reach our children and empower them to make me mindful choices that directly impact their lives and others. Additionally, the whimsical and groovy illustration brings this powerful story in message to life. The book is bound to campus our schools and our homes.”

"Banni Bunting has combined a beautifully written book with a series exercises that allows a child or group of children to engage in the process of mindfulness experientially. Not only has she accomplished this with poetry, compassion, and joy she has made looking at the effect your mindset is having on how you see the world accessible to the young. Banni is part of the new wave of teachers who have taken Mindfulness out of the retreat setting and into everyday life and she has done it masterfully.”

She has trained with Greater Good Science Center of University of California at Berkeley, The Holistic Life Foundation, Yoga Calm, Mindful Schools, along with Jack Kornfield, Tara Brach, and Rolf Gates.

In 2019 she released How Do You See the World? a mindfulness book for children accompanied with a complete mindfulness curriculum.
“Banni shared her mindfulness practice with my high trauma high school students weekly. Her mindfulness practice helped open their minds to new possibilities, as well as helping them connect with themselves and create their practice in a way that they could find relevance with. Years later, I still see them using some of the tools that Banni gave them. “
Kelly Peters // Marshall High School, Bend, OR
"Practicing mindfulness with Banni regularly with my students transformed my classroom community. Providing students with the space to connect with their bodies and recognize and understand their emotions was an essential part of our weekly curriculum. I truly believe a regular practice of mindfulness in the classroom has equipped my students with a "social-emotional toolkit" helping them successfully navigate life's ups and downs."
Tracy Jensen // Director of Admissions & Former Classroom Teacher, Seven Peaks, Bend, Oregon
“I have seen first-hand the benefits of Banni’s presence and her sharing of the practice of mindfulness in my classroom. Even the simplest of acts… pausing and taking a few cleansing breaths have a tremendous impact on my classroom culture. The practice of mindfulness creates a classroom where everyone feels safe and connected, benefiting everyone, including the teacher."
