    My appreciation for the realistic speech. I experimented a lot trying to bring mindfulness in schools through a training for teachers. I had the chance to make an amazing team with my students and their parents and we really managed to enjoy being together in school, learning together and making a lot of activities. I was lucky and I made a good team with some of my colleagues, too. Thank you so much for this video! I will continue my work!

    One comment more, a profound thing I find is that such programs are voluntarily.
    I am practioner since 20 years on that base, choosing the guidance and discipline which suit to me. The obligatory yoga class e..g. could be delicate, I think schools should make it possible to find time for own practice or giving education holiday for working on mindfulness or resilience in general or trauma etc and supporting supervision financially ….in Japan happily are high level masters on the fields of martial arts. On the other hand intellectual approach you nearly not find, it is necessary to apply it by myself. Therefore this summit and your talks supports for it is confirming what I can see with my own eyes: how my living quality and life changes through such practices. It is helpful to listen to any speech therefore. Best wishes

    Wow, thank you both for this powerful interview. I am a german teacher, tryingto start a awareness programm in a northern germany teacher education institut. And even this I will start my dissertation next year on right this theme. It would be so kind to get in contact to Mr. Greenberg, it would p.e. be a big help to know the studies and research he was talking about, and get to know his program for teaching teachers awareness. Thank you so much for this content and your work.

      Aline, you know certainly the work of Vera Kaltwasser. She is also giving workshops on mindfulness in schools. Maybe you want to get in touch with her or buy her books

    Thank you. I am listening from Japan being a German. The difficulty concerning system change is how can teachers be supported at places where a system change is nearly impossible. It is as if having to be a pioneer. It would be great if in the summit educators would get some support or guideline to build resilience in such a situation.
    Thanks again. Another request I would have concerning mindfulness: as it is mentioned often in the summit that teachers have so much to do I would like to request to keep the interviews online about 5 or even 7 days. The deep contents I would really like to work gradually on and not missing speeches. It is simply not possible in 48 h while working at school or universtiy. Thanks you so much again. Susanne

    In my opinion this session has been the most powerful. Thank you both for sharing your experience around implementation science. It is particularly valuable for those thinking of creating yet another program to assist teachers, administrators, parents, and students. Much love.

    This video convinces me to become more proactive as a librarian and send links to everyone I can. I’ll be teaching mindfulness more often and increase my own practice. Thank you!
