We’re excited to launch the Mindful Schools Workshop Series to give educators access to experts and take a deeper dive into leading-edge topics in Mindfulness in Education.

About This Workshop

If you are working with youth, it’s likely that you are motivated by love. You want the young people that you spend time with to have tools to live happier and more easeful lives. We are deeply conditioned to believe that employing such tools in our own lives is selfish, takes too much time, that we are undeserving of compassionate attention, etc. In this workshop, we’ll explore the ways in which those myths are not only false, they don’t serve anyone. We’ll also touch on the beauty of how effective tools become when they are offered by someone who embodies Mindfulness. We’ll explore what it means to embody Mindfulness by using Peace in Schools as a case study in a for-credit Mindfulness course in public high schools in Portland, Oregon. Join us on February 24th to learn more.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Understand not only the value, but the importance, of having a personal mindfulness practice should one be offering practice to others, and tools to help support this.
  • Learn about the possibility that comes from deep Mindfulness curriculum through the case study of what Peace in Schools is doing as a for-credit Mindfulness course in public high schools in Portland, OR.
  • Touch the joy that comes from recognizing that not only do your students deserve to be happy, you do too. 

Following this workshop, you will receive:

  • A recording of the workshop.
  • A workshop kit with summarized key points, practices to try, and further resources.

About the Mindful Schools Workshop Series

Mindfulness practice is both a wide and deep path–the current field of secular mindfulness continues to grow and diversify in practice guidance and teaching innovations and in our understanding of research. The Mindful Schools Workshop Series provides you with an opportunity to take a deep dive into a variety of topics delivered by experts, giving you access to the leading edge of what is relevant in the field and allowing you expand your mindfulness practice and teaching.

These 75 minute sessions will equip participants with tools they can immediately implement in their personal and professional lives. Sessions will include a talk, practices, Q&A with the presenter, and a live chat with fellow participants. Followup resources will be provided with a link to the recording, summarized key points, practices to try, and further resources to continue your journey.

Our Workshop Series is appropriate for all levels of experience. We strongly encourage completing our Mindfulness Fundamentals course so you may participate in workshops with a shared understanding of the Mindful Schools practice framework of secular mindfulness. Educators and MHPs may receive credits for the Mindfulness Fundamentals course.
