Cultivating Healing & Wellbeing in Education
July 15 - July 17
This is an ACMHE member-submitted event. Questions should be directed to the event organizer (TEL).
The 13th Annual Mindfulness & Education Conference focuses on cultivating healing and well-being for teachers in grades K-12.
This conference will create an environment to practice and embody the type of learning community that cultivates healing, renewal and the inner resources necessary so we can flourish in these complex and challenging times.
Through interactive keynotes, Mindful Awareness Practices (MAPs), mindful dialogue, breakout sessions and a closing integration panel, we will create an experience that inspires and uplifts participants on their journey towards wellbeing.
Conference experiences will be grounded in a spiritually-responsive paradigm that allows for deep reflection, transformation and integration at an individual and collective level.
The conference will explore how we can:
- Bring a spiritually-responsive approach to the cultivation of healing and wellbeing in education.
- Engage with contemplative pedagogy, indigenous wisdom, restorative practices, and Transformative Social and Emotional Learning (T-SEL) as a catalyst for racial justice and climate action.
- Create awakened communities of teaching and learning in our educational settings.
Held in partnership with Transformative Educational Leadership (TEL) at the Omega Institute, Rhinebeck, NY and sponsored by the Fetzer Institute.
