Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them.
These three-day breaks are a unique opportunity for teachers to explore the role of empathy and mindfulness in enhancing personal well-being, relationships with students and colleagues, and day-to-day motivation and efficacy. Scientific evidence demonstrates that by training in mindfulness and empathy we can considerably reduce levels of stress.
Above all, these practices help us restore a sense of humanity, and connection with ourselves and with others.
The training will allow like-minded educators to explore:
– The relationship between mindfulness, empathy and well-being
– The implications for education professionals
– The tools to cultivate these skills and to learn how to apply them to resolve difficult situations
The breaks will take place during the holidays at inspiring London venues:
11-13 February 2012 at the Jamyang Centre, Kennington / Elephant & Castle
2-4 April 2012 at Lauderdale House, Highgate / Archway
