We are now offering schools the following teacher training session:
An Introduction to Mindfulness for Teachers and their Students
Emma Reynolds is an accredited MBSR teacher (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction). Emma is also trained in Paws B, a training to teach Mindfulness to students, from MiSP (Mindfulness in Schools Project, UK). She is also the director of Blue Mango Theatre (English speaking theatre for schools) www.mbsr-mindfulness.com
We propose to offer a 2 hour session on Mindfulness aimed at teachers of all Student ages. Combining elements from the MBSR course, and Mindfulness for school children (Paws B from the Mindfulness in Schools Project, UK).
Our objective is to bring a better understanding of what stress is, how the body reacts to stressful situations, and how mindfulness can help calm the mind, allowing teachers to be more skillful when dealing with potentially stressful situations.
There are now over 30 years worth of scientific research that consistently show how mindfulness practices can enhance our physical and mental well-being.
