“Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all.”
What is KNOWTICE?
Knowtice is an organization that works to teach the importance of self awareness with emphasis on these mindfulness practices :
Having KNOWLEDGE of oneself and the science of human behavior.
Being in the NOW of life, this moment.
NOTICING what is happening inside and around you.
What does KNOWTICE mean?
KNOWTICE brings the KNOWledge, the science of being human into individual's minds and hearts. Teaching individuals how to NOTICE what they are experiencing both in and around them by noticing what they are thinking and feeling. To be present in the NOW with whatever life presents. When we give individuals these tools we create a more connected and kinder world.
How do we teach?
Our facilitated sessions always begin by simply closing our eyes, stilling our body, using our breath, listening and noticing what is going on inside. Essentially taking a brief moment to check in with ourselves, getting to know ourselves. We talk about what is happening in our brains, in our bodies, how many thoughts we have in a day, where we feel feelings, how we react to those feelings, how kindness really matters on a scientific level. We teach matters of the heart, mind and body. We teach individuals what they innately know, we just give it language and definition so they have a framework to understand their inner world.
What makes us different?
Instead of creating a book, a curriculum, or a video training, KNOWTICE brings the practice into your classroom, community or workplace. We bring caring, compassionate teachers to you who practice and embody the work. We create short lessons to engage your group and provide the experience for you. We do this over the course of 6 weeks with 20 minute weekly lessons. We help you develop a practice to create a more connected classroom, community and work space. We feel we are a compliment to the many incredible programs that exist and that many schools have already begun to implement. For some we reinforce the message, for others we help make the teachings more tangible and for many we introduce the practice for the first time. Wherever you are at, whatever you are looking for… we will meet you there and grow mindfully together. We are planting seeds and connecting human to human.
