Super excited to share this with you!
The University of Minnesota’s Center for Spirituality and Healing is presenting a Mindfulness in Education Summer Institute on June 28-30 at Webster School. Stressors such as shrinking budgets, increased class sizes, teacher attrition and burnout combined with large numbers of students who have experienced trauma call attention to the pressing need for innovations that promote wellbeing in school communities. The Center for Spirituality and Healing’s Mindfulness in Education Summer Institute brings together researchers and educators for three days of professional learning and discussion on mindfulness research and research-informed practices to address the urgent needs in schools. The summer institute is open to educators and education leaders regardless of experience with mindfulness. We will be there sharing what we are doing at Andersen United. It’d be great to see you there!
Many of you will be on spring break next week. May you find relaxation and happiness. Here’s a short Ted Talk by Louie Schwartzberg about nature, beauty and gratitude to inspire you to explore, go deep and enjoy each day. Be sure to listen at 3:33 and again at 4:44.
