    This retreat is a revitalizing, immersive, deep-dive into mindfulness. Ground yourself in mindfulness practices that foster self-awareness, compassion and connection, learn mindful teaching skills, and connect with a passionate community of youth-serving professionals.

    This retreat will explore how having your own mindfulness practice can assist you in working with youth who have experienced trauma, as well as unpacking the neuroscience that explains why mindfulness can be transformational for individuals who have experienced trauma. We’ll also explore the conditioning that influences our biases so that we can create and contribute to more inclusive, equitable classroom environments.

    This retreat is designed for youth-serving professionals. Mindfulness practitioners of all levels are warmly invited to attend.
