Ease and Wisdom - Bringing Mindfulness into the Classroom (Part 1) with Rosa

Wednesdays, January 16-30, 4:15-6pm
Educators sometimes lack the comfort and confidence in sharing their own mindfulness practices with their students. The purpose of this series of classes is to provide opportunities for teachers and other school personnel to develop comfort bringing mindfulness practices into their daily work with students. While, the benefits of Mindfulness and Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) have been highly publicized, many teachers are still unsure how to best infuse these practices into their work with students. This three part series will explore the connection between mindfulness and SEL and how the components and competencies of each are implemented in the classroom. This course requires that participants either have or want to cultivate their own awareness-based practices, because mindfulness is an experiential discipline; therefore, participants will be exploring a variety of mindfulness practices for personal and professional use.
