Educators Retreat at Morning Sun Center (USA)
July 1 - July 5
[We will publish further details about this retreat as they become available.]
This is a Level I Retreat, open to all. Classroom teachers, administrators, social workers, others in the educational field, and anyone who works with youth are encouraged to apply. 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, kindness, and emotional well-being inside and outside the classroom.
The retreat center at MorningSun offers an intimate setting in nature that pleasantly supports our communal practice of mindfulness. The modest retreat size is a precious and powerful opportunity that allows for every participant to have personal contact with each of the Teachers.
We are excited to welcome you to our home and community of practice!
