Set in the idyllic environment of the Eileen Rockefeller House lakeside retreat in the Adirondacks, this weeklong journey explores teaching for the 21st century. Participants will learn mindfulness practices, meditation, the neuroscience of learning, the nature of mind, and how to cultivate their inner resources.
Each day will include experiential learning, as well as a cognitive element – and afternoons will be free to enjoy the many outdoor activities available to us, or to simply relax and read a book. Learn how mindfulness might benefit you in your role as an educator, and re-connect with the ideals that brought you into this field from the start!
As Richie Davidson says “Teachers change the brains of their students” – Step into this exciting exploration and learn the new science of teaching and learning.
Program Facilitator Susanna Williams, PhD is a multi-disciplinary faculty member and researcher in the area of mindfulness and contemplative practice at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
