Wake Up Schools is a Plum Village initiative which supports educators to bring the practices of mindfulness and applied ethics into their own lives so they may be happy and free, and so they may in turn share these practices with colleagues and students in their school communities.
At our Wake Up Schools webinar on 20 October 2018, one of our senior teachers Richard Brady who founded the Mindfulness in Education Network, shared about his international work to help teachers to embody the practice and deepen their ability to share the practice. Richard summarises our Level I training, which supports the deepening of the teacher’s personal practice and introduces them to key elements of our Plum Village tradition, including our emphasis on community and the strong role that happiness plays in our practice. Level II training offers some teachers the opportunity to be mentored by a dharma teacher in order to explore ways to continue sharing their practice at work.
