Participants take part with the general public in a 10-week Med 1 – Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation course to learn the basic skills of mindfulness. The additional 10-session professional application segment offers educators guidance on how to bring mindfulness practices to a professional application in education. Collegial sharing, exposure to rich resources, and current research will support this application. These classes are open to K-12 educators who are currently enrolled in or have previously completed Med 1 - Introduction to Mindfulness Meditation. This prerequisite is imperative as personal practice in mindfulness meditation is foundational for a teacher’s professional application in education.
