dc.description.abstractThe effect of the global pandemic on systems of education in Ontario has renewed the call for mental health resources in schools. The detrimental impact of Covid-19 on mental-health related issues for students resulting from school closures and lockdowns raises awareness to the importance of mental health and wellness for students in Ontario schools. For my masters thesis I have written a novel called Our Life in Red Jell-O to foster a diegesis of mindfulness. The litmus test for the aforementioned creation of a space of mindfulness that happens is ones own personal response to the content of the novel. If reader response reveals a reception to a feeling of mindfulness, or freedom from thought, in the transactional analysis between reader and text on any level, we have a mindful diegesis, or from an epistemological standpoint, a way to know what mindfulness means through experience.
