Please join a half-day virtual retreat with the Mindful Schools faculty and grad community to get a window into our in-depth year-long programs.
The retreat will include silent practice guided by our faculty, as well as interactive and activity-based elements to connect as a community. Since you will be joining us from home, our faculty will create an online retreat container that is both firm enough to hold your experience, and also flexible enough to meet our varied living circumstances.
How to join: Make sure you’re on our SWIP notification email list––we will be sending information about how to prepare for the retreat as well as zoom instructions.
Is it free? There is no cost to attend. Programming this supportive retreat for our community represents a tremendous investment of time and care from our faculty and program teams. If you have the capacity, we invite you to consider supporting our Equity in Action (EIA) Fund to support equity, inclusivity, and access in our programming. Please learn more and make a gift here.

The Mindful Schools Schoolwide Implementation Program is designed for educators and school leaders who are passionate about integrating mindfulness programs into a variety of school and district settings. Through this immersive year-long experience, participants will develop key leadership skills and gain expertise on how to positively shift learning environments toward becoming mindful schools.
Program participants will learn how to facilitate teacher learning, create professional development for educators, work with administrators, and design multi-year approaches to implementation. Upon completion, graduates will be positioned to become consultants for educational organizations or to establish their own mindfulness business.
Designed by our experienced faculty of mindful education leaders, this robust program is based on Mindful Schools’ recent work integrating mindfulness programs into a diverse range of K-12 schools. Join us!
Mindful Schools is deeply committed to equity and inclusivity, and we believe that representation matters in all elements of our trainings. This year we established an Equity in Action Scholarship Fund to invest in educators who identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+. If you have the resources and capacity to support the EIA Fund, please make a gift here. Learn more about the EIA Scholarship in the Program Details section below.
“Starting SWIP is exactly what I need right now. I am so thrilled to be with you all––the expertise and compassion combination is abundant.”
