ABOUT THIS COURSE
Our Advanced Training For Mindful Educators is an 8 week mentorship course to support graduates of our Foundations For Mindful Educators course in creating and implementing a plan for mindfulness in their community, school or whichever setting they choose.
During this 8 week course, participants will review what they have learned in their Foundations course and start to look at their own hopes and dreams for mindfulness in the setting of their choice. Working with our Instructor, participants will create a plan for how to work with their population, within the settings of their choosing.
THIS COURSE INCLUDES:
Personalized MBSEL PLAN
The Personalized Mindfulness Based Social and Emotional Learning Plan or MBSEL Plan, is a customized curriculum tailored to the unique goals and needs of each participant. During the 8 week session, participants are guided and encouraged to reflect on their aspirations, habits, and think innovatively about how they wish to implement and teach MBSEL, in their life and work. Their new MBSEL life-habits, 8 weekly themes, lessons and support material, will guide their written plan and the initial implementation. Online community discussions are ongoing each week and facilitated by the instructor, who is also available individually via email during office hours.
The Professional Mentorship builds on the new MBSEL life-habits developed during the Foundations course and utilizes 8 weekly themes, lessons and support materials to support Foundations graduates. Utilizing these resources, participants work closely with their Mindfulness First Mentor to create their own MBSEL Plan for their school, place of work, family, and/or personal life. In the Professional Mentorship, participants are encouraged to reflect and cultivate their own way of bringing MBSEL to the communities they serve. They receive lifetime access to all of the resources they will need to implement, and continue their practice beyond the mentorship-based programming. Ongoing community curriculum discussions will be available online, as above.
