Analysis of the status quo and of the strategic perspectives with regard to the Quiet Time method and its effects in promoting social inclusion

FRIENDS is a 24-month project co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union under Key Action 3: Support for policy reform: social inclusion through education, training, and youth. Its aim is to contribute to national and European strategies in response to the “Paris Declaration”, fostering social inclusion and intercultural understanding in education systems through the implementation on a wider scale of an innovative whole-school approach known as the Quiet Time based on the Transcendental Meditation programme (Quiet Time/TM programme).

The main goal of the analysis provided in this document is (a) to establish how well-being of students is an essential ingredient for inclusive education, (b) to establish how Quiet Time based on Transcendental Meditation can contribute to wellbeing of students and teachers, and (c) to present relevant existing evidence and how evidence can be provided in the FRIENDS project.
