The materials from this highly restorative and informative workshop will focus on deepening educators’ practice of mindfulness, with a focus on how to build an effective practice and how to share those tools with students. Teachers will explore evidence pointing to the positive effects of mindfulness including increased lowered stress, greater ability to focus, self-awareness, as well as improvements in physical and mental health. Experiential activities include breathing, visualization and mindful moving techniques. Teachers are provided with many hands on activities and resources to take back to their classrooms and share with students.
