Educators Retreat – Blue Cliff, New York
July 19, 2017 - July 23, 2017
Join Blue Cliff monastics and senior lay teachers from the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh for this special retreat that brings together teachers, administrators, social workers and others in the field of education. The retreat will help participants cultivate their own personal mindfulness practice and develop the language and skills needed to bring the practice back to the communities they serve. They will also learn effective methods to enhance focus, attention, and concentration inside and outside the classroom.
Learn and explore mindfulness practices including:
– Sitting meditation
– Mindful eating
– Walking meditation
– Deep relaxation
– Circle sharing
– Loving speech & deep listening
– Beginning anew (conflict resolution)
There is dorm space available. There are no single or double rooms available as of Jul 2. We have scholarships available thanks to a grant from the Thich Nhat Hanh Foundation. Please check the scholarship box in the registration form if you wish financial help.
