Course Description:

This course investigates the ways that mindfulness practices and applications can transform both the classroom and a teacher’s wellbeing. Mindfulness is the building of three capacities: awareness, advancement, and authenticity. Built upon these facets, this course covers the background and uses of mindfulness, plus offers ideas about ways to use mindfulness in the design of learning spaces, routines, curriculum and community. Learners will access and discuss 24 detailed practices for individuals and groups, including step-by-step embedded mindfulness exercises, ready to implement immediately. They will be able to reflect individually and as a community, and feel empowered to start designing ways to incorporate learning into their classrooms and daily quality of life.

This course is led by Caitlin Krause, teacher and author of the acclaimed book, Mindful by Design. Her personal approach and guidance allows this course to be both instructional, informative, and filled with lasting personal and professional insights.
