Think Tank on Differentiated Mindfulness @(ECIS), Barcelona 11/21/15

If you or a colleague is at ECIS (European Council of Independent Schools) in Barcelona please come by Sat Nov 21st, 1:15 - 2:15, break, 2:30 - 3:30, will be presenting a think tank on Differentiated Mindfulness.

ABSTRACT:
With the popularization of mindfulness comes a great opportunity to pause within the practice itself and reflect upon its purposes, delivery, accessibility, entry points and current trends. How best can this genre reach all students and at the same time benefit those who teach it? This experiential presentation aims to explore and expand upon areas of success and open new pathways for differentiation. We will discuss best methods for cross-curricular, division specific and interdisciplinary collaborative teaching of mindfulness in order to weave it into an everyday life practice. And how the skill sets of mindfulness and contemplative practices like meditation can be taught in innovative ways to prepare younger and middle students for their next steps in personal learning, or educational development and for older students to be prepared for the expectations of the new workplaces they may encounter or create.
