MC4ME brings together educators, parents and professionals from across the state to learn about innovative approaches for teaching mindfulness and developing mindful and compassionate school communities.
A planning committee of our collaborators in the state had been meeting over 2019 to plan the first two day statewide conference on mindfulness in education in Michigan. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the conference had to be postponed to the fall of 2021, and unfortunately, once again, due to the uncertainty surrounding the safety of in-person gatherings, In lieu of this conference, we are offering a three part E-learning program with Rhonda Magee, MA, JD, who we had planned as our featured presenter. Rhonda Magee is a law professor, author and social advocate. She is also referred to as the mother of mindfulness and racial justice efforts. Drawing from her book, The Inner Work of Racial Justice, Dr. Magee will engage participants to learn mindful and compassion skills to address and heal from racial inequity, social injustice and trauma.
To allow ourselves to be truly in touch with where we already are, no matter where that is, we have got to pause in our experience long enough to let the present moment sink in; long enough to actually feel the present moment, to see it in its fullness, to hold it in awareness and thereby come to know and understand it better.”
