We are happy
to design new mindfulness workshops or combine or modify the workshops
described below to meet the needs of particular groups.
Peace in Oneself, Peace in the World:
Mindfulness Practices Promoting Inner Peace
The most valuable gift we can give our students and
ourselves is inner peace. Participants in this workshop will examine
obstacles to inner peace and learn and practice mindfulness skills that can
help transform these obstacles, enabling participants to be in touch with
sources of inner wellness and peace. Participants will become more aware
of stress producing mental states and learn methods of tending them in
healthy ways. Participants will experience techniques as they are used
in teaching middle and upper school students.
Learning from the Inside Out: Accessing
Inner Wisdom with Mindfulness
The Latin root of educate, educare,
means to draw out or bring forth greatness. How do we accomplish
this? In this workshop, participants will engage in exercises that
expand and connect inner and outer awareness. Participants will learn
contemplative methods to sharpen sensory awareness, connect in an intimate
way with text, and tune into and share their deepest responses with others in
a profoundly connecting way. The techniques used in this workshop can be
adapted to classroom practice with students of all ages.
The Joy of Mindful Parenting
Presence is the key ingredient of mindful
parenting, being fully present both to oneself and one’s
children. In this workshop participants will engage in contemplative
exercises that enhance awareness of one’s thoughts and feelings,
sharpen sensory awareness, and promote mindful
speech and deep listening. These skills are important building blocks of
rewarding relationships with children and adults as well.
