    What advice would you give to an educator/therapist who has done a year long Certification, five years of in class, therapy, parent, community, private in home person practice, to do relative to your weekend training? I endeavor to bring a curriculum such as this to pre school, elementary, middle and high school curriculum, community and parent curriculum….once again what is your advice?

    I so connected with you as I have done the same kind of teaching with kindergartners for many years and I see the outcomes when students are not respected and listened to especially about the anxiety and lack of a inner foundation.
    I have a small business now that I am retired and also hope to impact a change in education. Perhaps some day we will get a chance to dialogue.

    Wonderful presentation and work – love concepts of gentle and compassionate inquiry, acceptance, community, intimacy, allowing the model to adapt to student voices. Thank you.

    I have done Peace in Schools educator course. It’s beautiful. There can be a lot of resistance to and lack of understanding of what mindfulness is here in Ireland. We have just had a Bishop write to schools in a particular area warning against yoga and mindfulness in schools. I think this is a lack of understanding amongst other things. Thank you

    Wishing you the best, I will be also interested to hear more about your facilitator training for teachers, I’m from México and we definitely need to know more about Peace in Schools and learn from your own experience.
    Thanks!
