Introduction to Mindfulness for Educators

Thursday, February 7, 2019

4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Students, standards, and stress, oh, my! Teaching and serving students in other capacities are among some of the most stressful professions and yet few of us have healthy (and calorie free) strategies for addressing this reality. Join us to discuss the relevance of mindfulness in the era of social media and increased rates of stress & trauma. Participants will receive information about the neuroscience of contemplative practice and the incorporation of mindfulness in academic settings. We will also practice and discuss some specific techniques and applications for both educators and their students and we might even have some fun!
