Dozens of educators, counselors, and other youth-service professionals participated in our January event.

We are happy to report that our 2nd quarterly Mindful Educators Retreat was a success with nearly 50 participants from around the Bay Area!

Presenters Pam Walton and Doug Lerch led mindfulness and experiential practices and explored the topics of working with difficult emotions, cultivating compassion, and meeting challenging student behaviors with skillful responses.

Sarah Wilmarth led mindful movement and dyad practices, while Chelsea True led a community building circle where participants practiced skills including mindful listening and emotional attunement.

We would like to thank the Napa County Office of Education for hosting this event, our guest speaker Doug Lerch, founder of Seeds of Awareness, and all of the attendees whose participation contributed to a rich and meaningful day.

Our next event is slated for April 2108.  The day will consist of short periods of meditation, mindfulness strategies for supporting your practice and your work, and ample time to connect with others around the growing needs of our students.

This event was a Meetup project of Mindful Schools and was offered free of charge and by donation only.

“I loved it all! Pam’s, “Developing Empathy” will help me in the classroom while Doug’s, “Self-Compassion” will help me in my everyday life. This was incredible! Thank you for offering it!”
