Still Quiet Place 10-week Online Training for Teaching Mindfulness to K-12 Youth

March 26, 2024 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm UTC-8


This practicum is designed for educators and allied professionals who are interested in offering mindfulness to children & adolescents — to support youth in developing their natural capacities for focused attention, engaged learning, emotional fluency, respectful communication, and compassionate action. Together we will explore, in detail, the research-based Still Quiet Place curriculum.

During this interactive training participants will:

Either begin or continue their personal mindfulness practice for at least 30 minutes per day.
Review current research regarding the benefits of teaching mindfulness to children and adolescents.
Observe & discuss a ten-session curriculum for 4th-7th graders from beginning to end.
Explore & discuss skillful adaptations in language and practice to make mindfulness inviting and accessible to different age groups and populations.
Discuss the realities of offering mindfulness practices in classroom, therapeutic, and community settings.
Discuss the challenges faced when providing mindfulness instruction, including reluctance, resistance, or misunderstanding on the part of children, parents, and administrative leadership.
Review & reflect upon the essential qualities and qualifications for those interested in teaching mindfulness to children, and receive a framework for evaluating their own readiness to teach mindfulness to youth.
Discuss ideas for presenting/pitching a new mindfulness program in specific settings.

Limited number of scholarships available
