Letter from Vancouver School Board

Before launching this campaign, I sent a letter to the Vancouver School Board (o5.2016). In my letter to them, I kindly outlined how Mindfulness sessions at my child’s public school equated to Guided Meditation and Buddhist Meditation. I also supplied evidence of that fact, and I showed excerpts of the law which show that it unlawful to legislate things like meditation, in Canada. I kindly asked for their help in removing Mindfulness Meditation from my child’s public elementary school. In June 2016, I received a reply from them (see below). In their letter, they denied that Mindfulness sessions involve meditation and they denied that Mindfulness has any association to Buddhism. The Vancouver School Board was unwilling to consider my evidence, and that led to my launching an online petition through change.org, that same month. tag: stop mindfulness legislation
