The Conscious Classroom

Supporting Teen Learning with Mindful Awareness & Contextual Thinking With Amy Edelstein

Regular Price: $297

Feel empowered to open up new worlds of discovery for the teens in your life

Adolescence has always been a challenging time of transition. How much more so in our world today! If you work with teens in any capacity, as a teacher, mentor, or parent, you know that the complexity they are navigating the load of worries they are carrying can weigh on even the most positive of youth.

How do you help them?

  • You can’t be there for them at every moment.
  • You can’t prevent every disappointment.
  • You can’t protect them from what you can’t predict.
  • You can’t prepare them for what you can't imagine.

But there is a way to empower youth with tools that will grow with them throughout their lives. Those are the tools that point to deeper truths and our higher human capacities.

Put those keys in a teen’s hands, and they’ll figure out how to unlock the doors in front of them.

No matter what our shared future ends up looking like, there will be adolescent challenges.

That’s part of growing up.

There will also be huge cultural upheavals that we can't foresee . . . like the pandemic, like America taking to the streets and insisting on the end of systemic racism, like a climate movement led by youth pressuring parents and CEOs alike to ensure their healthy future.

While teens need to feel prepared, what they really need are...


Worldviews that create meaning, are deep and relevant to our times.


Methods and practices that provide stability, balance, and fortitude.


Above all, they need relationships that are meaningful and kind, adults who care, friends they feel connected to, and a sense of being at home in themselves.

This is a tall order...

But the perspectives and practices you'll learn in
The Conscious Classroom can fill the gap.

If you have been struggling to find simple but profound keys you can put in a young person’s hands, The Conscious Classroom program is for you.

Through the engaging lessons and illuminating contemplations, you’ll learn practical tools to share with teens who are anxious, or grieving, or seeking. You’ll discover how to put the keys of perspective change in their hands. You’ll be able to support teens by helping them transform their outlook and worldview, so they will see possibility and potential, not challenges and deadends.

Perhaps most importantly, you’ll be able to release your own capacity for care and connection, even if you don’t have all the answers.

In The Conscious Classroom course you will learn the key principles and elements of the Inner Strength System™ which has empowered more than 15,000 high school students since 2014. This system of supporting healthy social emotional development is evidence-based. Research on participants has shown statistically significant increases in students’ self-regulation, self-compassion, optimism, perseverance, and happiness year after year. These changes are not arbitrary measures. They are key metrics that have been shown to bring about better learning, happier students, and more conscious classrooms.

Are you ready to bring these tools to youth?
