About Us

Maya Wilson's academy for leadership development for undergrads is a demo online academy created by utobo Inc. to help you understand what your online store will look like.


Whether we are speaking, listening, texting, emailing, or just plain thinking, most of us spend our days communicating. Language is one of our primary ways of connecting with others and understanding our lives. Communication habits run deep, yet patiently bringing attention to specific aspects of our words and thinking can have profound and far-reaching impacts.

The more we understand and transform our own communication patterns, the more care, clarity, and flexibility we are able to bring to all of our life’s relationships. In the classroom, in particular, our skill in speaking clearly and listening empathically is vitally important. It helps us connect with students at a deeper level, enabling us to better meet their academic and personal needs.

Our Course Objectives

This Two-week virtual course offers an opportunity to deepen your mindfulness practice by exploring the realm of interpersonal communication in all aspects of your life: personal, social, and professional. The course draws upon the tools and insights of mindfulness practice, the internationally used system of Nonviolent Communication, and the science of nervous system regulation. Videos, exercises, and detailed lecture notes guide you through a step-by-step, integrated approach to understanding and transforming your communication.

This course is specifically designed to help you:

1. Reduce the stress associated with interpersonal differences and conflict

2. Find creative and effective tools to handle student behavior issues

3. Learn ways to build stronger relationships with students, parents, faculty, and administrators

4. Develop skills to create more trust, cooperation, and collaboration

5. Hear the genuine concerns and real needs of others regardless of how they’re speaking to you

Mindful Communication is generally not a beginning level course, and can be more rigorous than other Mindful Schools trainings. You can expect to devote 2-3 hours per day, and are strongly encouraged to pair up with another participant as a “practice buddy.” Buddies talk once per week for 20-30 minutes (often via video chat or phone) to practice course material.

Who Is This For?

The Mindful Schools community includes educators, counselors, parents, and a wide range of school community members. We invite you to join this course if you are interested in deepening your mindfulness practice alongside a like-minded community of peers.

Before taking this course, we strongly recommend that participants have a background in personal mindfulness practice through our 101: Mindfulness Foundations course.

Course 1. The Learning Mindset Journey : Nurturing a Growth Mindset (Free)

Course 2.  The Art of Empathic Communication for Stronger Bonds. (Paid)
