2018 Autumn

“A series of Mindfulness for Educators:
Healing from the heart to support the growth of teachers”

Dr. Barry Kerzin will teach educators as a series of lectures.
We would be happy if you could join this program with us!


Message from Dr. Barry Kerzin

This program for teachers is designed to help them take better care of themselves. The approaches we will discuss include mindfulness, compassion, and healthy self-confidence. These methods to enhance personal growth lead naturally to more joy and satisfaction, not only in the classroom but also in life. As we learn to find more meaning in our life, we naturally transmit that meaning to our students. Being more present and aware brings more balance into our lives. This is valuable especially when facing a chaotic and stressful classroom. Being balanced in the present moment and aware of our inner life, we become more resilient and less influenced by the sometimes disruptive and chaotic classroom.

Working more from the heart, we will cultivate more trust with our students and colleagues, enriching our own experience as teachers. Compassion allows us to emotionally step back and not automatically react to stressful classroom situations. We begin to appreciate the circumstances behind bullying, depression, and self-harm. From a compassionate perspective we become more open to understanding the nuances of these difficult situations. Broader perspective, rather than getting sucked in, gives us to time and space to consider the best course of action to help everyone involved.

Much of the material presented is drawn from the theory and experience of progressive schools in the west, particularly America. Please join us for an interactive experiential day filled with lecture, discussion, question and answers, topped off with meditation.
