I Am
Joyful, Confident & Creative

It was never just about meditation, not really. When a kid has a deep, hidden wound it will propel them off the cliff if something isn’t done to heal it. With healing, education can do its job, open up the future. Meditation is a way this kind of healing becomes possible.

Sponsored by former Carolina Panther linebacker Na’il Diggs, Ranjit worked with students at Coulwood Middle School and Randolph IB World School to teach them the basics of mindfulness meditation.

  • We hope the program will teach students how to deal with their anger, fears and stress in a positive way. The students will learn a new set of skills they can use the rest of their lives.

  • It’s important to me, especially before and after games. After four hours of football, the adrenaline you feel is enormous. We get excited and anxious whether we win or lose. In order for me to go home to my family and my kids, I need to meditate to get in a better frame of mind.

    Na’il Diggs· former Carolina Panther
  • It was good. I was getting into it. It relaxes you, makes you feel better. If you’re having a bad day, it takes the stress off.

    Chris Latimer· seventh-grade student
