Nourishing Calm- Mindfulness for Teachers  3rd- 5th November

A weekend of professional development for educators to deepen their mindfulness practice in the supportive environment of the forests, mountains and rivers of the Wangapeka Valley.

There are now many courses that offer mindfulness training, some are through computer screens while others share introductions through brief night classes. While these are helpful places to start, there is no substitute for the support of a group who are committing time to practice together in a supportive environment. This weekend will nourish both your understanding and experience of meditation/mindfulness.

This retreat will be welcoming to all levels of practice, genders and ages. We will create a supportive environment to nourish seeds of calm and deepen understanding about mindfulness. Learning mindfulness physically changes the body/brain/nervous system. It can lead to a happier life with more calm and more harmony in relationships. You will learn practical techniques to help release stress, anxiety, sadness and other difficult states to feel more confident, connected and creative.

Costs $270; this includes your own room (unless stated otherwise), three healthy meals a day, resources, teaching and administration costs.
