This day is offered in partnership with Mindfulness Everyday.
Committing an entire day to mindfulness is a wonderful opportunity to deepen practice and offer yourself some calm and joy away from the rush of daily life. The day will consist of a mix of mindful practices and introductory dialogue around best practices when teaching mindfulness to students. You will leave feeling nourished, connected to other educators and fuelled by discussions and sharing.
The event is open to everyone in education – educators, parents, professionals and for anyone who is taking or has taken a SMART training. Please arrive at least 15 min early to settle in. Please wear comfortable clothing and bring a yoga mat, blanket, a mindful lunch, a thermos and/or reusable water bottle and anything else you need to be comfortable. Hot water and tea will be provided. Experience the power of community while practicing mindfulness together.
