PassageWorks Collaborates with Asian Mindfulness Dojo
With a shared vision of bringing an education of the “heart”, a mindfulness-based emotional skills and EQ program to schools in Asia, PassageWorks/SMART in Education™, USA and Asian Mindfulness Dojo (AMD), Singapore have agreed to collaborate.
The curriculum, pedagogy, and format of the training programs are a blended version of both SMART in Education™, USA and AMD. SMART ASIA by AMD is different from the program conducted in the USA under the name of SMART in Education™. SMART ASIA integrates the following skill set: mindfulness, emotional skills or EQ, conversational skills, and stress regulation strategies, including deep breathing.
SMART ASIA’s commitment is to develop competent faculty who can train teachers in Asia in the above skill set. The training approach for the faculty is multifaceted and will include a combination of in-person training, online courses, a practicum on teacher training, action learning, personal coaching, and peer support.
