A Mind Adventure
Help students discover how they are wired emotionally and practice communication and creative problem solving skills from a place of inner confidence. Explore meditation, as well as intention and goal setting, to create their own blueprint to success.
This class is designed to provide youth with the understanding and tools to navigate rising thoughts, emotions, and responses in a way that decreases stress and anxiety and improves ability to learn, connect, and lead within an educational setting and beyond into life, relationships, and career.
HiEQ guides students to:
Discover their own personal core qualities, values, and beliefs
Better understand their emotions, thoughts, feelings, and perceptions
Shift from negative to empowered states of being (mentally, physically, and emotionally)
Comprehend the emotions of love & fear & understand their effects on the brain & body
Listen actively & communicate empathetically
Activate critical thinking & creative problem solving
Create and execute specific, personal goals & intentions
Affirm their purpose in alignment with their core values
Merging SEL, creative arts, guided meditations, journaling, and social media calls to action, the curriculum is engaging, interactive, and kinesthetic. Each topic is broken down into clear, detailed lesson plans, so that teachers can integrate the program into their unique classroom settings.
HiEQ employs the teaching structure “I-do,” “We-do,” “You-do” to create a collaborative learning environment. It includes hands-on activities relevant to real life challenges that students face every day in school, at home, and in their communities. Lessons adapt easily to a variety of core subjects, particularly health, social sciences, and the arts. Activities include both group and individual instruction and are designed for diverse learning styles. Each topic culminates with a meaningful “Call to Action,” giving students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned by using technology to facilitate positive change.
HiEQ includes eight topics that range from 90-170 minutes with SEL exercises and activities, creative arts, journaling, and guided meditations. Each topic is typically taught over the course of a one or two-week period and can be integrated into a variety of lesson plans.

HiEQ Student Journal
Students work in their own personal journal to guide them through the process and track progress. Students refer to their journals for learning and reading, writing journal entries, clarifying objectives and summarizing lessons. They will find funny definitions to mind boggling emotions, social media Calls-To-Action, poetry and inspiring imagery. The student journal serves as a reflection of the inner work they do as they align their core values and beliefs with their goals and intentions.
includes HiEQ Daily Planner
Students apply the tools they learned to their daily lives after the program is completed with the 30-Day HiEQ Daily Planner, included in the HiEQ Student Journal. Students feel their way to success with specific 5-a-day tasks that help them achieve their goals and birth their biggest dreams. The HiEQ Daily Planner provides one introspective "Question of the day," along with spaces for their aligned "I Am Affirmations," "Today I'm grateful for," and "On a scale of 1-10, how was your energy today and why?" We added in a section for daily reminders and check boxes for meditation, exercise, healthy eating and acts of generosity.
