Creating a Mindfulness-Based, Healing-Centered Environment: An Introduction to Mindfulness for Educators (Jul 12)

STARS Credits: 2

How can you create an environment for your students that is healing-centered and builds in mindfulness practices? Research on mindful environments in schools and settings with children indicates that we can create environments to pause, connect, and create awareness.

In this workshop, we will present a framework around four key ways that educators can begin to cultivate this environment by:

  • Creating their own mindfulness and compassion practices.
  • Sharing practices with students authentically and focused on relationships.
  • Building in practices with rhythm and repetition.
  • Providing space for regulating the nervous system.

You will leave with an understanding of what mindfulness is, learn a few practices yourself, and begin to see how you might introduce this to students.
