Mindfulness 101(Lincoln County School Educators only)

$10

with Erica Marcus, MAT, Certified Mindfulness in Schools Instructor, Coulombe Center for Health Improvement

Calendar Oct 14, 2021 at 4 pm
The Coulombe Center for Health Improvement is partnering with Erica Marcus, MAT, Certified Mindful Schools Instructor, to offer an Introduction to Mindfulness class to help Lincoln County teachers create a more positive classroom culture through mindfulness techniques. MINDFULNESS 101: This 2 hour professional development workshop will provide an overview of mindfulness in education. First, it will give staff an introduction to mindfulness: what it is, its history, and what the research says about its benefits. We will also review some of the neuroscience that informs the practice. Second, we will touch on how mindfulness can be used by teachers to manage their own stress and support building a strong classroom culture. Third, we will cover some basic mindfulness techniques that can be used with students in the classroom. Finally, the program will be infused with guided mindfulness exercises — of sound, breath, and body — so staff can experience the practice. This workshop is a good jumping off point for staff to further explore their own practice and connect with resources that will help them bring mindfulness into the classroom. www.wiseminds-bighearts.com Location: Herbert and Roberta Watson Health Center Community Room (ground floor) 24 Miles Center Way, Damariscotta If you have any questions please contact Brooke Alley at 207-563-4269 or brooke.alley@lchcare.org
