Mindfulness for Teachers: a Hands-on Approach - Florence

Rating: 5/56 users

This course has been created for teachers and staff who want to learn more about what Mindfulness is, how it can benefit both their students and themselves, and how it can best be integrated into their schools.

By establishing a firm foundation in their own self-practice throughout the course, participants will learn how Mindfulness can be cultivated in a practical, hands-on way. Course participants will be encouraged to keep a journal of their experiences which will provide insight even after the course has finished, and help motivate them to continue their own practice.

By the end of the course, participants will have established their own Mindfulness practice, having experienced its benefits first-hand. Participants will leave the course with a toolbox of Mindfulness practices which they can use in their classrooms. They will have gained an understanding of how these practices can be adapted to their individual student populations, and how they can be introduced to students unfamiliar with Mindfulness. Finally, they will have a firm grasp of how Mindfulness practices can have a positive effect on students' moods, ability to focus, stress levels, and communication – as well as their own.

- Understanding of how Mindfulness can benefit the entire school community
- Introducing the concept and practices of Mindfulness into classrooms
- Adapting the suggested lessons to students’ specific needs
- Designing s Mindfulness lesson
- Being conscious and the potential of Mindfulness for wellbeing and learning, both at the individual and at the group level

An amazing experience! The course was an interesting combination of theory and a lot of formal/informal practice. It allowed me to improve my meditation skills and gave me new ideas to use with my students and for my personal life.

A very insighful and interesting course. Puts a whole new way of looking at yourself as a teacher and more importantly as a person!
