This year's Peaceful Primary Schools conference will be held on Friday 7 June (2013) at the Fazeley Studios in the Digbeth area of Birmingham, quite central within the city.

Primary School Head Teachers and teachers are our target ‘audience’ for this. For more information please email:firstname.lastname@example.org
The Spiritual England campaign to bring stillness and peace into children’s lives is inspiring and timely.
From Maharishi Foundation®, an educational charity which offers Transcendental Meditation™ in schools thinks it is essential for children to find inner peace and happiness through meditation.
All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone.

Meditation is a great tool for children, it enables them to relax and creates a conducive environment for them to be themselves.
Byoma Kusuma Buddhadharma Sangha
The challenge we face is getting teachers to agree with such techniques and some people are very closed when it comes to getting children more involved with who they are.
