This program will be organized around educators deepening their daily personal practice and developing a project focused on offering mindfulness practice for students in school settings. Participants should already have completed the introductory program or be able to provide evidence for background in mindfulness practice and education. The focus of the program will be on supporting each other in both of these endeavors and the structure will be a facilitated collegial working group where we will draw on collective wisdom to grow our understanding and implementation of mindfulness practice.

Session 1: In the first session we will be checking in on participants’ personal practice and setting some intentions and commitments for consistency and/or growth. We will also be discussing plans for a student project, setting metrics for evaluation, and assigning accountability partners for support moving forward.

Session 2:

In the second session we will be sharing progress and insights from personal practice and from design and/or implementation of work with students. Time will be dedicated to trouble-shooting and shaping the project prototypes.

Session 3:

This session will include ongoing sharing as well as the design of evaluations for student projects.

Session 4:

This session will be focused on reflections from personal practice and student projects. In addition we will share evaluation results and look forward to future iterations of work with students.


This program is for educators who have completed the introductory program, Mindfulness in K-12 Schools, through CATDC or be able to provide evidence for background in mindfulness practice and education.
