Teaching from the Heart: A Day of Mindfulness for Educators

UPDATE: Teacher is now Ofosu Jones-Quartey.

In this daylong for educators we will learn and practice tools for taking good care of ourselves, so that we can be truly present for those we teach, and bring the best of ourselves into the classroom. We will slow down and come home to our body and breath by practicing mindful sitting, walking and eating silently together, as well as deep relaxation, a mindfulness talk, and group discussion.

“The unwritten curriculum in the classroom is the teacher's presence.”

Meena Srinivasan, author of Teach, Breathe, Learn

We can’t transmit mindfulness in our work as educators if we don’t embody it ourselves. Therefore the focus of our day will be on nourishing ourselves as educators, yet we will also explore secular mindfulness practices and exercises we can share with our students.

The focus of the day is on secular applications of mindfulness and is therefore appropriate for educators of all faith traditions or none.

Whether you are a teacher, school counselor, administrator, or simply have an interest in mindfulness in education—all are welcome.

Please bring a packed lunch with you.

We will slow down and come home to our body and breath by practicing mindful sitting, walking and eating silently together, as well as deep relaxation, a mindfulness talk, and group discussion. We will possibly use the tools of InterPlay—improvisational movement and storytelling—to access the wisdom of the body, and touch our inherent grace and ease.

Brooklyn Zen Center 1 day Retreat

Creating a Beautiful Past: Dwelling in the Present We Heal the Past and Take Good Care of the Future

Drawing on her 15 years living as a nun with Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and the monastic community, as well as the transition back to lay life two years ago, Kaira Jewel will explore how living deeply in the present allows us to heal wounds from our past, not only in ourselves but also in our ancestors. And how the best way to prepare well for the future is to take good care of this moment, right here and now.

Intuition: Honoring Our Inner Knowing--An InterPlay Daylong Workshop

A Day of Embodied Play

Sponsored by InPlay

Lunch: 12:30 – 1:45 p.m. Bring your lunch or dine out at a local restaurant.

There is deep wisdom in each of us. Come play with the tools of InterPlay to explore how we can nurture and access our intuition more in daily life. 

Have you ever just suddenly "known" something, right down to your bones? How is it that these experiences of "getting it" arise? How can we nurture this arising of insight and strengthen it? How do we know when it’s the real thing, rather than just our ideas that shift and change with external circumstances? 

With journaling, as well as movement, voice and stillness, we will explore how body wisdom and embodied play can be a powerful doorway to intuition.

Please bring a quote that inspires you (it can be about intuition, but doesn't have to be) to share in our 'Group Oracle.'

InPlay Members - $30 | Non-members $40

You can pay online here: InPlay members: paypal.me/KairaLingo/31.50

Non-members: paypal.me/KairaLingo/42.50

When you register, please share your email so we can give you the address of the location.

Followed by Gorgy 2: a six-course gourmet extravaganza. See separate announcement for details.

Registration deadline: full fee due by April 3, to secure your place.

Make checks payable to Liz Lescault.

Mail to 3030 Crest Ave. Cheverly Md. 20785 For further information call Liz at 301-852- 3463
