Peace of Mind's Buddy Brains Conference


While I was working as a filming specialist at DC Public Schools (DCPS), I learned about a mindfulness-based Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum called Peace of Mind that was being implemented in a few elementary schools at DCPS. After meeting with the directors of the organization, I was amazed at how aligned my professional goals were to this organization’s mission of teaching social-emotional skills to children through mindfulness.

I had the opportunity to film Peace of Mind's Buddy Brains Conference, which featured keynotes and workshops about teaching neuroscience to elementary school aged students as part of a mindfulness-based SEL curriculum.

As the sole videographer, I filmed the keynotes, interviews, b-roll, and workshops. I worked with the directors to storyboard two videos, which can be viewed on this page as well as on their website.    

Through this conference, I learned about the types of activities that are used to teach mindfulness and neuroscience to kids in a classroom setting and am looking forward to applying these new techniques in my future workshops.  

"It has been such a pleasure working with Lisa to produce the videos of our recent conference. We have appreciated her professionalism, care and skill in every aspect of our project. We particularly were impressed by her attention to detail, positive and friendly approach, dedication to understanding our needs and seeing that they were met, excellent communication throughout the process, and seamless, effective videography at the event itself. Post event, we enjoyed working together with Lisa to create the final conference videos. Her beautiful editing and composition have produced videos that offer an excellent record of our conference that we are able to share with those who couldn’t attend, and will give future attendees and funders valuable insight into the Peace of Mind community and the quality of our events. We are big fans!" - Cheryl Dodwell, Executive Director
