Mindfulness is a purposeful, non-judgmental method of focusing attention on the present moment including awareness, attention, and remembering. It cultivates the process of gradual mental development and is enriched by the concepts of acceptance, affirmation, self-reflection, non-evaluation, and sympathy. This profound, meaningful practice is universally healing, appropriate, and beneficial to mental health. Many researchers investigated its benefits in the education system for improving processes of teaching, learning, and interactions between teachers and students. This study applied a comparative, descriptive, integrative review to probe over thirty peer-reviewed published papers in credited journals found in search engines, concentrated on mindfulness in pre/post COVID-19 education. It manifested how this collection of research departed in their finding, application, recognition, implication, feasibility, and methodology employed. It concluded with the significance of mindfulness-based interventions in the post-COVID curriculum.
