K2241-5: EDUCATORS RETREAT - experienced practitioners [unfortunately cancelled !]

14.10.2022 - 16.10.2022

*** [unfortunately cancelled !] ***
This course is for teachers with experience in the Plum Village/WakeUpSchools tradition

Mindfulness in education ~ what next?

Today young people face a complex, challenging future, dealing with climate crisis and social injustice. They face challenges retaining their sense of self worth amidst the forces of relentless advertising and powerful social media. In the midst of this, we, their teachers, know how they long to engage in the world purposefully and ethically. How does mindfulness in education fit into this picture?

During this retreat, we will consider the ethical and community components of mindfulness in school and classroom. We will examine ways to incorporate mindfulness into specific subject areas such as the sciences, literature, and the humanities. We will consider how to develop programs that run from year to year. We will also work with the interesting dynamics that arise from being seen as a mindful teacher by colleagues and the community.

All educators are welcome; however, this three-day retreat is designed particularly for middle and high school teachers who already have a personal mindfulness practice and who have begun to share mindfulness in their schools, either on a small or large scale.
