    Ep. 11: The Value of Retreat at Home

    Shelter-in-place has challenged Mindful Schools to deeply rethink how we support educators at our in-depth, week-long (and typically in-person) mindfulness retreats––a focal element of our Mindful Teacher Certification Program. Megan, Argos, and Alan discuss how the shift to virtual-at-home retreats has opened new doors to support and empower educators to integrate mindfulness into daily life.

    Ep.10: The Intentional Slow-Down

    When we first watched countries sheltering-in-place in the spring, many of us experienced disbelief. I could never do that, many thought. Yet here we are, again, riding another wave of shelter-in-place. Megan, Argos, and Alan discuss interesting similarities––both delights and struggles––of social distancing and silent mindfulness retreats.

    Silent retreat is an impactful element of the Mindful Schools Mindful Teacher Certification Program and Schoolwide Implementation Program. Learn more about these immersive year-long programs.
