TEACHER RETREAT MAY 2
Last year I began organizing one-day mindfulness retreats for teachers in
western Massachusetts, curious to see if that format could be a useful
support for teachers in this area. A simple retreat available four
times a year, welcoming experienced and novice mindfulness
practitioners, seemed one way to help support mindfulness in schools.
Here is an announcement of our fourth retreat, on May 2; another is
scheduled for August 24. Click to download a flyer:
Mindfulness promotes kindness, concentration, and readiness to learn,
as new research demonstrates. These retreats are a place to learn about
mindfulness and its benefits from area educators, and to discover
resources you can use; a chance to unplug, and consider smarter "tech"
and "no-tech" choices in our daily lives.
