We will collectively practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful eating, deep relaxation and other mindfulness practices. We will learn how to ‘bring body and mind together; generate feelings of joy and happiness; know how to deal with painful emotions and thoughts and listen with compassion.’

These are the crucial skills Thich Nhat Hanh has shared with educators. Having tasted the joy and peace generated by these practices we will explore how we can bring our own practice into our classrooms and school environments.

Language: English. It may be possible to cater for other languages on request.
