PRACTICAL MINDFULNESS FOR THE CLASSROOM AND BEYOND
Our practical mindful strategies will provide teachers with tools to help them develop and maintain a sense of calm and resilience within themselves and their classrooms in order to meet the many challenges presented by teaching and as well as life beyond the school building.

THE WORKSHOP
The workshop will provide practical mindful strategies to use in the classroom as well as an exploration of the history and science of meditation. Teachers will have a chance to experience meditation and then lead others in meditation activities.

AFTER THE WORKSHOP
Participants will be provided with handout materials in order to review strategies. Participants are invited to continue to meet with or communicate electronically with workshop facilitators.

OUR PHILOSOPHY
Teaching is an intellectually and physically demanding job that requires hard work and the ability to change and be flexible on a moment to moment basis. The skillful use of mindful strategies can provide teachers with necessary calm and strength to meet the challenges of teaching in the 21st century.
