Workshop

Transformative Educational Leadership: A Yearlong Training

Jul 27 - Jul 29 2018 Rhinebeck, NY

We are no longer taking registrations for this workshop.

Join us on campus and online for a yearlong immersion into mindfulness-based social, emotional, academic, and ethical learning.

Integrating Mindfulness-Based Social & Emotional Learning Into K-12 Schools

This yearlong training serves the growing need for educational leaders to be better equipped to integrate mindfulness-based social, emotional, academic, and ethical learning into schools and school systems worldwide. With leaders in the fields of education, research, contemplative neuroscience, and resilience, we access the best evidence-based practices, curricula, and strategies for educational systems transformation. Through this year of training, both on campus and online, educational leaders become better equipped to:

  • Cultivate self-care and community-care, utilizing practices for developing resilience, focus, and wellness
  • Interpret and integrate decades of research and theoretical knowledge in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), mindfulness practices, and neuroscience for practical application
  • Understand and more skillfully work with stress and trauma in students, teachers, and communities
  • Hold an equity lens and integrate restorative and culturally responsive teaching practices
  • Engage in a cycle of continuous improvement and practice data-driven decision-making

During the year we become a community of compassionate learners and collaborators, supporting and inspiring each other to create transformational learning communities.

Guest faculty include Daniel Goleman, Sheryl Petty, Yvette Jackson, Patricia Jennings, Mark Bracket, Brendan Ozawa-De Silva, Hector Montenegro, Lisa Flook, and Shauna Shapiro. Teachers are subject to change.

Please note the online portion of the training will take place August 8, 2018-July 10, 2019 and continues on campus July 14-19, 2019.

This training is by application only.
