Mindfulness in Education Retreat
With JoAnna Hardy and Erin Treat
July 12 - 17, 2020
Mindfulness meditation offers powerful antidotes to school-related stressors and is a support for compassionate engagement inside and outside the classroom. Retreat practice can cultivate practices of presence in body, heart, and mind in a way of responding to oneself and also to the larger suffering of our communities and our world.
Please join us for this very special silent mindfulness meditation retreat for educators. Each day will include instructions for sitting and walking meditation as well as talks by the teachers. There will be time for discussion, questions and answers, and meetings with the teachers. In a spectacular wild environment, we will work with mindfulness and compassion practices to nurture presence both inside and outside of the classroom.
Please note that this is a silent mediation retreat. It is not a workshop. The last afternoon will be focused on skills used in the classroom to teach from a place of mindful presence.
JoAnna has been exploring and practicing multiple traditions since 1999. In 2005, her focus landed on Buddhism and Vipassana meditation. Helping communities and individuals that don’t typically have access to traditional dharma settings, social/racial justice, and building multicultural community is top on her list of priorities. She is an empowered teacher in the Spirit Rock, IMS lineage. For more information, visit www.joannahardy.org.
