Cultivating Mindfulness in Education

Wake Up Schools supports educators to bring the practices of mindfulness and applied ethics into their own lives so they may be happy and free, and so they may in turn share these practices with colleagues and students in their school communities.

Tineke Spruytenberg and Miles Dunmore will offer two weekend retreats for educators who are already practicing in the Wake Up Schools / Plum Village tradition. The retreats will be hosted by EIAB.

In-person retreat: 14-16 October 2022


Online retreat: 21-23 October 2022
