Attention Teachers... Learn how to use mindfulness in your classroom and in your life. Teaching and working with children, is one of the most rewarding and yet challenging professions. It is common for teachers who are passionate about their role and care for their children as individuals, to feel challenged with the complexity of the role and the student needs within their classroom. Mindfulness practices provide simple tools that can be utilised daily within the class setting to help calm the mind, , detach from student behaviours and create space to be fully present with the children. It helps to create a space for peace and attention to the self. This in turn, helps teachers to be more present and attend their students more fully. This ‘Mindful Teacher’ Program is 2 weeks x 2.5 hour sessions, introductory program to begin this practice development.

(Cost of the program is $155 per person) This 5 hour beginner level program, is designed specifically with teachers in mind. However, it would be useful for any adult who works or interacts in settings with children. The course includes a balance of learning about mindfulnes, practical applications and time to practice. Participants will be provided with handout notes at each session. The course includes: - An Introduction to Mindfulness: What is it? How is it being used? - What are the benefits of mindfulness for teachers/ adults and students? - Mindfulness techniques and practices: different practices will be taught each week including using the breath, awareness of body, becoming more heart-centred, mindfulness of emotions - How and when to become more mindful in the classroom or when working with children (particularly challenging ones) - The power of self-compassion: for yourself and the students you work with - Teacher’s Toolbox : 5 minute mindfulness practices for the classroom.
