Fifteen year old Adam Avin, created the Wuf Shanti Children's Wellness Foundation, to teach mindfulness, so children can live in health and wellness, peace and positivity. Through videos, books, mobile app, music, fun, and games, children learn yoga, meditation, communication, inclusion, social emotional learning, and positive thinking to help them stay physically fit, mentally less stressed, able to cope with emotions, and interact with kindness. Wuf Shanti has been honored to receive many awards, and Adam is honored to have been published in many national publications, interviewed many pioneers for his “Partners of Peace” series, founded the Kids' Association for Mindfulness in Education, and to be co-founder and hosting the Mindful Kids Peace Summit. Adam is certified in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction for teens, Kidding Around Yoga, and the Emotion Code.

Welcome to the first international Mindful Kids Peace Summit. The idea for this summit came because Adam was concerned about the violence in the world, and he wanted to help kids learn to live in health and wellness, and peace and positivity, so that they can grow up to live healthier and happier lives.
The statistics for the number of tweens and teens experiencing anxiety, depression, anger, bullying, suicide, and homicide have risen greatly in the past few years, and some kids may think there is nothing they can do about it. But there is. Science has shown that mindfulness tools can help kids to learn better ways to cope with emotions or deal with stress as they grow up, and hopefully they will be happier teenagers and more peaceful adults. These tools can also help you do better in school, and make a positive impact on the world as well.
The Mindful Kids Peace Summit, the first of its kind geared to tweens and teens and their teachers and parents, and shown as part of the curriculum in schools across the globe, will allow kids to hear from pioneers in the industry, who will share different techniques to navigate through and process emotions and stress.
At this Summit, you will watch interviews with more than 50 experts, and motivational speeches from celebrities and professional athletes. You will also see demonstrations that you can try at home, in school, and with your parents, teachers, and friends.
Topics that will be covered include anything in the mindfulness area, such as mindfulness, positive thinking, kindness, peace, yoga and mindful movement, breath work, communication, diversity, inclusion, gratitude, social emotional learning, and so much more. It is all so important, especially with everything going on in the world right now.
We must all come together in order to stop the violence and make a positive impact. Just as reading and math are mandatory parts of curriculum, we believe so too should mindfulness be incorporated into education. Our vision is to build momentum so that all schools across the country and internationally attend the Summit each year at the same time as part of the curriculum.
Talking points and materials will be distributed to schools that attend, so that the teachers can plan discussions around the daily summit segments, and kids will be awarded service points for attending via an attendance certificate that we will provide to the school. Further details will be sent by email after registration on how teachers can support students to receive a certificate.
We hope you will join us on this magnificent mindful journey of peace.
Adam and Helen
Learn More about How the Summit Works
The Mindful Kids Peace Summit is the first of its kind geared to tweens and teens to be shown in schools around the world as part of the curriculum. It is 5 days online. You can pick and choose which portions you want to watch. A schedule will come out around Sept 16th (one week prior to the summit) which tells educators the order of speakers, and topics, and times of each video, so they can choose who/what they want their students to watch. There are videos for teachers and videos for students and some shared videos.
The Replay of the summit is free if schools watch Sept 23-27th, the actual days of the summit. If they want to watch it again or at a later time or in pieces, then they can pay and have access for one year. It’s $99 before the summit and it’s $169 after the summit (after Sept 23). And that’s for the whole school, not per student. Lots of bonus materials too!
Each video will stay up for 36 hours once it’s posted (because of different time zones around the world), and then it will be removed from the free live site and placed in the membership site.
Each of the 5 days teaches tweens and teens about different topics that focus on mental health and stopping the violence, such as communication, diversity, inclusion, kindness, anti bullying, mindfulness techniques to cope with emotions and stress, social emotional learning, interacting with others, positive psychology, how we can be making a difference in the world, and so much more. Educators will be provided with resources and materials (free for download) to continue discussions with their students after the summit if they choose.
