Mindful Teachers, Mindful Classrooms

This morning, I was part of the team supporting an “Introduction to Mindfulness” session by Hackney and City Mind, in collaboration with the Mindfulness in Schools Project and Educational Psychology Services at Hackney Learning Trust.  This was an opportunity for those working in schools to find out about how mindfulness can enhance the flourishing of well-being in professional lives, schools and classrooms.

Over thirty participants joined in mindfulness practices and were introduced to the evidence-base for teaching mindfulness in schools.  It was well-received and many were interested in further training in mindfulness, such as the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) courseContact Holistic Education for further information about Mindfulness Training in Schools and the .b programme.
