Inner Explorer
Our goal at Inner Explorer is to support students, educators and their families.
Our team has developed a daily mindfulness app for families. You can download the app at no cost during this time, thanks to the generosity of our partners including LG Electronics and the Allstate Foundation.
Core benefits of daily mindfulness practice:
  • Reduce stress: Guided breathing and relaxation exercises are easy to do and replace fight or flight responses with calm.
  • Boost immune system: Regular practice enhances health.
  • Improve learning:  With many students working online and at-home daily use helps kids focus and learn. 
  • Foster Resiliency: Teaches children tools to deal with challenges and the skills will last a lifetime.
Inner Explorer's 5-10 minute audio-guided mindfulness app is easy to use and is most effective when used daily. The app will help kids and families practice at home to create calm and focus during these challenging times.
