School brings Montessori education with emphasis on ‘mindfulness.’

McLean — More than 25 years ago, Mary Anne Duffus was almost at the end of her rope. She was chasing her dream of opening her own Montessori school, but after searching at multiple local churches for space, she couldn’t find one that would work.

I had the dream to start a school for a long time, but after five years of looking for a place that had the facilities I needed, the last church I came to was St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church, and I told myself if it’s not going to work here, it’s time to let go of my dream,” she said.

Introducing taste, nutrition to the next generation

by Alexandra Greeley, Fairfax Times

renderTeaching youngsters culinary tricks, like measuring butter and sifting flour, can reap long-term benefits. Even more beneficial is a professional chef, such as Thomas Elder, executive chef of härth Restaurant at the McLean Hilton, guiding them to better nutrition. That leads to a healthier life, and in the long run, that benefits the child, the family, and eventually, society itself.

So why did this high-profile chef start offering these no-fee classes? “It is such a good time when a child is 5 years old,” he said, about the program he started this fall at the Brooksfield School in McLean. The founder of the school contacted Elder because the chef’s kitchen uses local sustainable ingredients, and the founder was interested in teaching children about healthy eating.

Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda to devote class hours to teach 'mindfullness'

by Robert McCartney, Washington Post

Overstressed, overworked, college-obsessed students at Bethesda’s prestigious Walt Whitman High School will receive “mindfulness” training during class hours to help them relax and focus.

Sure, it sounds mush-brained. For 30 minutes once a week, instructors from a local nonprofit organization will guide students in about a dozen classes to take a few minutes to sit quietly, close their eyes, pay attention to their breathing and grow more aware of both physical sensations and emotions.
