In the past decade, teacher learning programs focused on mindfulness have become increasingly noticeable. But how pervasive is this novel phenomenon and what exactly does it offer to teacher learning and professional development? This research presents a review of publications of mindfulness for teachers and aims to present an empirically grounded map of the academic discourse of mindfulness for teachers and its development from 2002 to 2018; discuss the main strands of mindfulness for teachers; point to the prospects of this field in light of strengths and limitations in research and implementation.
