Description

This course has been created for teachers and staff who want to learn more about what Mindfulness is, how it can benefit both their students and themselves, and how it can best be integrated into their schools. 

By establishing a firm foundation in their own self-practice throughout the course, participants will learn how Mindfulness can be cultivated in a practical, hands-on way. Course participants will be encouraged to keep a journal of their experiences which will provide insight even after the course has finished, and help motivate them to continue their own practice. 

By the end of the course, participants will have established their own Mindfulness practice, having experienced its benefits first-hand. Participants will leave the course with a toolbox of Mindfulness practices which they can use in their classrooms. They will have gained an understanding of how these practices can be adapted to their individual student populations, and how they can be introduced to students unfamiliar with Mindfulness. Finally, they will have a firm grasp of how Mindfulness practices can have a positive effect on students’ moods, ability to focus, stress levels, and communication – as well as their own.

Reviews about this course

Wonderful experience! In such a beautiful city nothing could go wrong 🙂 The course allowed me as a beginner a first encounter with Mindfulness and meditation, and I am positive it will be become a useful tool for the class and also my personal life.

The course was well planned and a good combination of theory and practice.

Nina Tuorila

A really good, intensive course with theorie and a lot of exercises to practise mindfulness.

Gertrud Dietrich

A very insighful and interesting course. Puts a whole new way of looking at yourself as a teacher and more importantly as a person!

Željka Brezni
