EVENT DATE: JUNE 17, 2014
Thank you to the thirty-five community members who met with the board of MC4ME on June 17 to continue the conversation about bringing mindfulness into education in Michigan. The evening began with a simple gratitude practice and was followed by examples of exercises from the curriculum of Mindful Schools and the SMART-in-Education. A discussion followed about the vision and possibilities for the organization, and how it can best serve the community’s needs. Participants expressed interest in receiving teacher training, in mindfulness courses geared toward teens, tips on funds and resources to support this training, such as grants and grant writing workshops, and in creating a support network for those teaching mindfulness practices in schools.
