International Educators Retreat – EIAB

October 15, 2016 - October 21, 2016

eiab-300x168

Please join us this October at the EIAB in Germany for ‘Happy Teachers Change the World’ a retreat for educators offered by monastic and lay practitioners in Thich Nhat Hanh’s Plum Village tradition.

The retreat is for teachers, educators, school managers and administrators from all types of schools and educational institutions, it is aimed at both newcomers to the Plum Village practice as well as experienced practitioners.

We will collectively practice sitting meditation, walking meditation, mindful eating, deep relaxation and other mindfulness practices. We will learn how to ‘bring body and mind together; generate feelings of joy and happiness; know how to deal with painful emotions and thoughts and listen with compassion.’ These are the crucial skills Thich Nhat Hanh has shared with educators. Having tasted the joy and peace generated by these practices we will explore how we can bring our own practice into our classrooms and school environments.

Language: English. It may be possible to cater for other languages on request.
More information and registration: Please follow this link to EIAB website.
