About This Event
Mindful Schools is thrilled to welcome esteemed meditation teacher, Joseph Goldstein, for a live online event, as a benefit for Mindful Schools. Having practiced consistently for 40 years, Joseph is a foundational leader in the modern mindfulness movement who has helped thousands of students to practice, oftentimes at pivotal moments in their lives. He will share ways in which mindfulness practice can offer a rich and fertile ground from which one can cultivate a life that supports awareness, creativity, empathy, and authenticity, opening up to the full range of what it means to be alive. With his voice of encouragement, curiosity, and steadiness, Joseph will provide insight into building a consistent practice that will not just support you, but also the young people you teach.
We invite you to join us for this rare opportunity. All proceeds from this event will help Mindful Schools bring mindfulness to classrooms that need it the most. Help support this work: guiding teachers, students, and whole school ecosystems to cultivate resilience, compassion, focus, and self-awareness! We thank Joseph from the bottom of our hearts for generously offering this event as a gift to help raise funds for Mindful Schools.
At this special event, you will have the opportunity to:
- Practice with one of the world’s leading teachers and experts on mindfulness
- Ask Joseph Goldstein your practice questions
- Get a glimpse into the benefits of having practiced for over 40 years!
- Strengthen your personal practice and your capacity to model mindfulness for students
Following this event, you will receive a recording of the conversation and practice with Joseph.
Meet Our Teacher: Joseph Goldstein
Joseph Goldstein co-founded the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, Massachusetts with Sharon Salzberg and Jack Kornfield in 1975. Joseph was first introduced to mindfulness meditation practices while working as a Peace Corps volunteer in Thailand in 1965, and he dove deeply into study and practice before bringing what he learned abroad back home to the United States. He now leads insight and loving-kindness meditation retreats worldwide. Joseph is the author of several publications such as: Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Awakening; A Heart Full of Peace; Insight Meditation: The Practice of Freedom and The Experience of Insight.
There is no fee to attend this event. As a fundraiser event for Mindful Schools, tax-deductible donations are gratefully accepted to help provide scholarships for teachers, free resources for the community, and mindfulness programs for underserved schools.
