SEE WHAT PEOPLE SAID LAST YEAR:
I found the week to be FILLED with information. So many of the speakers resonated with me. Their words were not theoretical.
- Joanna, Virginia, USA
A wealth of experiential practices and concise sharings from leaders in the field. Thank you for a fantastically rich collection of works... feeling inspired!
- Sheena, Ireland
I appreciated the hard questions about what it is we are really teaching in our classroom over just reproducing compliant behavior. I made pages of notes of key points, examples, turns of phrase.
- Mary E. Malloy
I have been using mindfulness practices with my middle school students for the past five years, and I really needed this boost of inspiration! This helped me to not feel alone in my work.
- Stephanie, Washington, USA
The scientific back up of mindfulness in the talks was great as I am planning to prepare workshops soon. I believe I can use these resources for years to come as we work to increase our use of mindfulness in my school district.
- Lisa, Massachusetts, USA
