Event description

Description

This workshop is for teachers who practice mindful awareness and who wish to bring those qualities more directly into their classroom teaching. The four-day program builds upon participants’ established mindfulness practices by using a broad range of interrelated contemplative activities. The program lays the foundation for wellbeing and confidence that comes from being at home in our bodies. This holistic approach activates teachers’ sensory, somatic, emotional, cognitive, and aesthetic qualities. From this basis teachers learn how to extend mindful awareness into strong, authentic, and trusting relationships with students – the foundation of effective pedagogy.

All program participants will be required to have a regular mindfulness practice and to have completed SMART*, or a similar mindfulness program. It is intended that after the program participants will select from among the activities that suit them best and apply them in their classrooms. A participant packet of activities, readings, and resources will be provided. Participants should bring a lunch every day to eat mindfully with others. Participants who attend fully will receive a Certificate of Completion.

*Stress Management And Resilience Training for Teachers, a program of PassageWorks, offers a series of mindfulness trainings. Naropa’s Contemplative Teaching Initiative is a collaborative partner with SMART.
