Mindfulness Learning Community 2019-2020 (Boulder)

November 5 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Mindfulness Learning Community: A Practice Network for Educators

 Are you looking for support in maintaining a mindfulness practice?  Do you know the basics but would benefit from community and an exchange of ideas and experiences with colleagues?

Mindfulness Learning Community (MLC) is a new course offering from PassageWorks for alumni of our mindfulness programs as well as any other educator with a mindfulness practice.   Whether you have taken SMART 1, SMART 2, The Mindful Teacher or another mindfulness training program, the Mindfulness Learning Community will help you maintain your practice and well-being during the busy school year.

MLC includes:

  • Once a month after school meetings with PassageWorks faculty and colleagues to practice together and share experiences
  • At least one half day Saturday retreat each semester to reconnect with a deeper experience of practice and silence
  • One CSU graduate credit based on:
    • attendance
    • meditation logs
    • one half-day retreat each semester
    • one written reflection (two pages) each semester

The group meets two hours once a month between October and May and will include: group practice, dyads, whole-group discussion of practice and small group discussions.
