Please join us in London for a special retreat for educators with Zen Master Thích Nhất Hạnh, learning from one another and from speakers in our shared professional field of education. Together, we will practice ways to cultivate a more compassionate classroom and school environment.
Facilitated by monks and nuns, the retreat offers the opportunity to practice with and learn from internationally respected peace activist and teacher Thích Nhất Hạnh. During the retreat, we will explore the workings of our bodies and minds and learn how to use the power of silence and self-care to increase clear thinking and action.
As a participant, you will gain specific experience and increased knowledge of practical tools and mindful methods specifically relevant to teachers and others who work with children and young people, and will learn how to form and sustain mindful communities in schools, universities, and at home.
