Day 1: February 8, 2019
Introduction to Mindfulness for Educators:
Full day of pd that introduces mindfulness, the science, benefits, who uses and why. Participants also engage in foundational mindfulness practices followed
by reflection. We dig into mindfulness as an antidote to stress and trauma,
learn about self-care, and develop a self-care action plan. We explore trauma
and how it impacts brain development, growth, and learning. Participants
take the ACE and learn more about themselves. Participants leave with
practical knowledge and awareness of mindfulness and how to incorporate into
personal and professional lives.
Day 2: April 26, 2019
Teachers as Mindful Leaders:
A voluntary teacher leader group from a district will learn in depth foundational
mindfulness practices. Teachers will explore and engage in the foundational
mindfulness practices and learn how to teach them on this day. Role
playing and participation is required on this day. Participants are required to
establish a personal practice.
A book study and weekly virtual sessions for one month is an option with this
training for an additional fee.
Day 3: June 7, 2019
Teachers as Mindful Leaders with Students:
At least one month after Day 2, the voluntary teacher leader group will reconvene. On this day we will engage in deepening our practice and discuss our experiences up until this point. Participants will review scripts and map out a calendar to teach this work with students. Students (provided by the district) will also be part of this day, teachers will get the chance to practice scripts, holding space for students, and offering safe space for discussions with students. We will have a roundtable discussion about the experience for all involved, developing an initial plan for district roll out.
