Research shows that students and teachers in school systems that have adopted mindfulness are happier, more focused, more compassionate, and less impacted by stress. What school would pass up a chance to raise test scores, have fewer playground fights, and cultivate a more peaceful learning environment?

This training helps us gain the skills to bring the benefits of mindfulness to children in grades K-12. Educators, counselors, parents, and child-care providers deepen their own mindfulness practices and discover tools to incorporate them into daily life and work.

Throughout the week we balance professional development with personal development, and information with transformation. We experience an in-depth training in Daniel Rechtschaffen’s Mindful Education Workbook curriculum and explore how to apply these teachings to children of different ages, populations, and needs. We examine current research and look at how schools and organizations are successfully integrating these transformative practices. We also cultivate our own mindful awareness, open-heartedness, and connection with colleagues who share an inspiring vision for education.

The following book is required reading for the course:
