ACLJ Says Federal Grant Is Being Used to Fund Meditation in Public Schools

The controversial use of meditation in public schools is being partially funded by a federal grant, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) says.

Christian Headlines previously reported that schools across the country are incorporating meditation in the classroom as a way to boost a child’s self-awareness, self-control and academic success.

Teachers use curriculum from companies such as Inner Explorer and MindUp as part of the meditation lessons. It’s often called “mindfulness.”

ACLJ reported on a $3.3 million federal grant for researchers at Penn State University to study the impact of meditation on children.

“Students are subjected to real-time audio in the classroom, instructing them with directives such as to clear their minds, watch their memories and emotions float away, and feel their connection to the universe,” ACLJ reported.
