“Mindfulness is the WD40 of education. It’s you on a good day. It unlocks things; it lubricates everything we’re trying to do and makes it more effective.”
Prof. Katherine Weare was recently interviewed by The Middle Way Society about ‘Happy Teachers Change the World’, the award-winning practical manual on mindfulness in education that she co-wrote with Thich Nhat Hanh.
Katherine speaks about her first ‘taste’ of the Plum Village tradition and the value of the emphasis that Thay places on nourishing ethical, joyful communities. She shares about how Happy Teachers Change the World developed as a practical guide for teachers, with 500 contributions from teachers around the world.
