4 Week Introduction to Wellbeing and Mindfulness for Schools and Teachers

 This is a practical Programme and will give teachers insights and tools to reduce and effectively manage stress, boost their personal wellbeing and provide them with the resources needed to lead an introductory Wellbeing and Mindfulness session for students and teachers in their own schools. Resources include a mini resource manual with a detailed Wellbeing framework, a course outline, a suggested reading list and references and a PowerPoint presentation for the Programme. Participants will also be given a 12 minute relaxation recording they can use personally and with their staff/students.


This Introductory Wellbeing and Mindfulness for Schools and Teachers workshop will give participants key insights about stress, what causes it and how to effectively manage it at a personal level as well as the content, resources and information needed to help others do the same. They will also learn about how the mind works which gives key insights into how to create a life that is productive, happy and meaningful - so they can help students understand the mindset and thinking strategies that will help them  reach their potential. Participants will also learn a range of relaxation and meditation practices to help them focus, destress, regulate emotions, slow down, re-energise and feel good.
