NOURISHING THE SOUL OF TEACHING - MINDFULNESS AND MORE....

$200 SUBSIDY AVAILABLE FOR ANY REGISTERED NZ TEACHER

13TH-17TH APRIL 2020 AT THE BEAUTIFUL SHAMBHALA RETREAT CENTRE IN GOLDEN BAY

Mindfulness is about cultivating awareness and kindness. Soulfulness is a way of listening deeply to what animates the passion for teaching and learning. Parker Palmer talks about a way of living and working which is ‘divided no more.’ Sometimes the remedy demands more than deep calm, it requires reconnecting to the heart.

  • A retreat that will rejuvenate, replenish, help you relax deeply and reconnect you to the passion for teaching and learning.

  • Learn how to meet busyness with practices that reliably cultivate calm and clarity

  • Explore how myth and story can present us with a map for integration.

  • Empty beaches, time for yourself within a supportive community

  • Connect with other teachers who aspire to bring mindfulness into their living and their classrooms

  • Subsidies for the first 15 teachers, get in quick if you want the $200

A private sponsor is donating $200 to any registered teacher who wants to participate in this retreat.

(…) I am now incorporating pauses into my workday and I have become much more deliberate in managing my work life balance”
 Diane, Deputy Principal Wellington Adventure School.
