About Chris Reck

Hi, I'm Chris Reck. Welcome to Already Mindful. About 6 years ago I discovered mindfulness. It made a difference in my life and my work as a teacher in high schools. I decided to train how to teach it and spread the mindful word. I trained with the Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP), then with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice, both in the UK. I recently completed postgraduate research with the Faculty of Education at Cambridge University. I based my research on the uses of mindful attention and how it can frame teacher agency and identity.


Chris Reck is an imaginative and dedicated teacher - but more than that, he is one of the people who understands most deeply how to teach in a way that builds young people's own capacity and confidence as real-life learners - which is surely the pivotal responsibility of 21st century education - any young people who are lucky enough to have Chris as a teacher will be well prepared for life  Professor Guy Claxton, Emeritus Professor at Winchester University and Visiting Professor of Education at King's College London.

I have been privileged to see the creative fruits of Chris’ experimentation and growth as an educator. Chris has the rare skill of being able to take the germ of an idea or intellectual provocation and to run with and develop it, in the process of which he manifests many desirable qualities – intellectual risk-taking and curiosity, creativity, rigour, the skill of drawing astutely on his own reading, culture and experience, and a genuine interest in engaging and extending the interests of learners of all abilities and backgrounds (which he does with great success).
