The morning of August 23, brought together a wide array of 35 educators and health professionals from across the State committed to supporting mindfulness practices in children, parents and staff. Four mini-presentations from a k-8 principal, Spanish middle school teacher, guidance counselor and mindfulness teacher described successes in weaving mindfulness throughout a school and/or school district. We were inspired by seeing participants actively engaging in sharing stories, and information on ways they are implementing mindfulness in Michigan schools and higher education institutions. A groundswell of skilled teachers in mindfulness is bubbling up in our Michigan communities!
We are happy to share that MC4ME is partnering with the leadership efforts of Steve Norman responsible for bringing together the first of three summer IBME Teen Retreats to Michigan. The first retreat will be held at Fetzer Institute, July 20-26, 2019 and capped at 22 participants due to venue size. Contact Steve Norman (firstname.lastname@example.org) to learn more or to become involved in planning, mentoring or recruiting efforts.
