Evidence Based Courses App

Mindfulness for High Schools

Through our work at the University of California Santa Barbara, we’ve created a digital course that increases focus and improves emotional regulation. This 22-day course is highly interactive and personalized, and it’s available on desktop or through our iOS and Android apps.

Teens are now the most stressed age group in the U.S., and they live in the most distracting time in history. Thanks to a grant from the U.S. Dept. of Education, we can make our course freely available to high schools throughout the United States.

Learn more at www.evidencebasedcourses.com and consider joining us in helping high schools learn about this free resource.




Making big improvements to the quality of your life is much easier when you have a skillful mentor in your corner to help chart the path and navigate the journey. We work with a limited number of clients in one-on-one coaching. We specialize in working with teenagers.
