About our Training
Mission Be is offering a weekend training for educators March 18-20, 2016 to bring mindfulness practices to their own lives and their classroom and school communities. Mindfulness in schools has been shown to provide students with skill-sets that support social-emotional growth, self-regulation and stress-management. It has also been shown to create safer and more nurturing school.
? Develop or Deepen Educator Self?Care Practice: The weekend experience is designed to help participants enhance their personal self-care and relaxation practice. Each day includes dedicated time for concrete mindfulness practices that can reduce stress and improve well-being in body and mind. Our hope for participants for the weekend is to not only learn how to bring mindfulness to youth but also come away from the weekend refreshed and rejuvenated.
? Learn Mindfulness Facilitation Skills: The weekend will train educators in Mission Be’s 8 Week Mindfulness Program for children in K-5. The training includes Mission Be’s curriculum modules on the science of mindfulness, mindfulness and the brain, mindful communication, reacting vs. responding, empathy, gratitude, and facilitation and class management skills.
? Strengthen Peer Network: Integrating a new program such as mindfulness provides many challenges. The weekend training offers many opportunities to authentically connect with and learn from peer educators who can serve as sources of inspiration and support as you bring mindfulness to your community.
About Mission Be
Mission Be is a non-profit bringing mindfulness to schools and communities as an antidote to stress, violence, bullying and addiction. Mindfulness can be described as the practice of paying attention in the present moment, and doing it intentionally and with non-judgment. Typical activities in our mindfulness programs include interactive lessons on the science of mindfulness, guided breathing practices, role plays, affirmations, and mindful sitting, walking, eating, listening and speaking exercises.
Since launching in 2013, we have successfully implemented our mindful education curriculum with over 600 educators trained, over 7,000 children directly impacted and 22,000 indirectly impacted through our professional development program.
