Mindfulness Retreat for Educators, June 23-30 in New Hampshire


(Valerie Brown) #1

This is a Wake-Up Schools Level 1 Retreat.

Dharma Teachers Valerie Brown, Richard Brady, and Fern Dorresteyn are teaming up to offer an Educators Retreat at MorningSun Community. We invite you to join these longtime educators and wonderful Dharma Teachers from the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh for this special retreat. Classroom teachers, administrators, social workers, others in the educational field, and anyone who works with youth is encouraged to apply.

The retreat will offer participants a chance to refresh themselves and cultivate their own personal mindfulness practice as a base for any sharing of mindfulness with others. It will support them to have an experiential understanding of the practices, and develop the language and skills needed to bring the practice back to the communities they serve. They will also learn effective methods to enhance focus, attention, kindness, and emotional well-being inside and outside the classroom.

The retreat center at MorningSun offers an intimate setting in nature that pleasantly supports our communal practice of mindfulness. The modest retreat size is a precious and powerful opportunity that allows for every participant to have personal contact with the Teachers.

We are excited to welcome you to our community of practice!
