New LinkedIn Group for Teachers of the Peace in a Frantic World course

"Finding Peace in a Frantic World - Teachers" is a new group on LinkedIn for those teaching the course.

“Finding Peace in a Frantic World – Teachers” is a new group on LinkedIn for those teaching the course.

There’s a new LInkedIn Group for those teaching the “Peace in a Frantic World” course.  It’s only been recently that I trained to run this programme and it’s good to be connected to others who’ve been trained to run it too… so we can offer each other support, advice, tips and suggestions.

This course is an 8-week programme developed by Mark Williams and Chris Cullen.  It’s based on the best-selling book, “Mindfulness: a guide to Finding Peace in A Frantic World”, which has sold nearly 200 000 copies and been translated into 19 different languages worldwide.

    Sounds like a valuable support group for compassionate teachers!
    I’ve been involved with the Mindfulness in Education Network which also provides training and support for teachers of mindfulness and social/emotional learning. More info available at http://www.mindfuled.org

      Thanks for the thumbs up 🙂 It’d be great to get this programme running in schools to help teachers find greater well-being and maybe some will go on to teach it in their classes. You have a beautiful site – loved the poetry. This August, I’ll be visiting the states (in New York mostly) for the first time since. I’m looking for mindfulness-related events to attend. Any suggestions are welcome.
