Event description
A powerful 8 session programme designed specifically for teachers, for themselves and to support their work with children and young people.

About this Event

This 8 session evidence-based programme is designed to introduce teachers to a set of simple yet powerful practices that can be brought into daily life to help us to break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. It helps us to reclaim our well-being as we try to keep up with the relentless demands of the modern world. It also serves as part of the prerequisities for those who wish to teach mindfulness to children in their lives.

‘‘A coherent, compelling and common-sensical 8-week programme for anyone caring about his or her own health and sanity, especially in this increasingly fast-paced and, as they refer to it, frantic world.’’ – Jon Kabat-Zinn.

For people who are working in the education sector or parents whose children are taught mindfulness curriculum in school, .bFoundations was developed and incorporates the Finding Peace curriculum in addition to practices that are taught to children in schools. Both are based on the core principles of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and for this programme, tailored to make the course accessible and effective for busy people. Trialled successfully with 100s of teachers in UK and Irish schools - see www.mindfulnessinschools.org to learn more about the work of this charity.

On this course, participants will learn practical ways to feel calmer and more present in their everyday lives, in work and communication, cultivate compassion and experience mindfulness teaching from the inside-out. This will enhance and enrich interactions and activities in the classroom and beyond.

Duration: 8 x 1.5 hour workshops.
