Bringing mindfulness into education
Being a teacher in the world of today is a demanding job with lots of challenges, often resulting in stress and burnout. Is there a solution?
In the film ‘Happy Teachers Will Change the World’ we see Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh sharing the practice of mindfulness with 1300 teachers during a retreat in Canada. The teachers are invited to come back home to themselves through mindful walking, mindful breathing, mindful eating, total relaxation and noble silence. Looking deeply into their personal suffering, and sharing it in a group, they are able to transform it. Are they ready to go back to the classroom, to create a ripple effect of happiness into the world, starting with themselves and their students?
This film is suitable for any person who wants to cultivate happiness and freedom in his/her life, both teachers and non-teachers.
Also available at the Plum Village Online channel on YouTube, with subtitles in ten different languages.

Happy Teachers will change the World is the vision of Thich Nhat Hanh to bring mindfulness into schools through the embodiment of mindfulness by teachers. When teachers embody the practice, they will automatically transmit their mindful positive energy, freedom and happiness to their students. Happy Teachers make Happy Students.
The Happy Teachers will change the World project is organised by Wake Up Schools, Plum Village. For more information: wakeupschools.org
