The Inner Strength Foundation presents its second annual Teacher Training for the Inner Strength Teen Mindfulness Program
The Inner Strength Teen Mindfulness Program is a unique high school program which teaches adolescents powerful and effective focus, stress reduction, and compassion tools, all set in a framework of cultural and physiological development. Teens become archaeologists of themselves. They learn to explore their personal experience as they feel it and as a result of 300 million years of influence. These tools and perspectives can make all the difference, turning a life burdened by overwhelm into a life filled with interest.
Learn to teach this program in a 56 hour Teacher Training program. The Teacher Training will begin with a full weekend training. Over the course of the weekend, you will develop your understanding of how to teach mindfulness tools with an emphasis on a developmental context. You will learn how to work with difficult classes and what posture or inner attitude is most important for teachers of mindfulness to exemplify and transmit to students. This weekend will be followed by 4 interactive video conference calls. Participants will present to the group and being individual class reviews. In the final weekend, you will work in small groups and in the large group, refining your understanding of the specific lessons and the underlying objectives and goals. Once classes begin in the Fall, you will participate in weekly conference calls which are focused on the specific class experience. You will be given support both by Amy Edelstein and by the cohort, which is growing into a dynamic collective of committed teachers of teen mindfulness.
