It’s hard to believe August is almost over and we’re heading into the 2014-2015 school year!
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL to all the educators and students out there!
We’ve had a whirlwind summer at Mindful Schools. Our Program Team has just returned from leading four back-to-back Year-Long Certification trainings in California, New York, and Europe. Whew!!
We receive requests throughout the year from local schools and organizations inquiring about our speaker availability. While we can’t accommodate many of these requests due to our busy training schedule, we have three exciting, upcoming in-person engagements to share with you!
- Omega: Women & Power 2014 – September 19-21 (Rhineback, NY)
- Johns Hopkins: Mindfulness and Learning – September 29 (Baltimore, MD)
- Mindful Schools: Curriculum Training – October 17-19 (New York, NY)

This conference is a wide-open exploration of how to live, love, and work together as whole human beings, and an opportunity for fresh and bold conversations. [Learn more]
