WW28 RachelleOlsonMindfullnessCome to this workshop to learn about mindfulness, for yourself and for our children. This presentation will explore what mindfulness is, how it is useful, and how to really make it a part of your life. The Mindfulness in the Schools Project (MiSP) in England has a well researched and practiced approach to bringing mindfulness into schools, for teachers, students and parents. I will cover their program, which I teach, as well as other insights gleamed from Wake-up Schools (Thich Nhat Hanh's initiative for the schools) and iBme (inward Bound meditation experience) camps for teenagers. If you have an interest in moving education forward with this whole-person approach please come and see where education is going. If you are interested in learning mindfulness for yourself, or your kids, this workshop is for you!

Rachelle Olson is a life long educator, having taught for 28 years on 3 continents to adults, teens and children. As I was often teaching ESL I saw the evidence that physical movement assists language acquisition, and my Montessori training was based on the fact that movement helps all learning, so I incorporated my yoga practice into my work. I taught students yoga before their English lessons. The results where fantastic. And later when I learned mindfulness for my own benefit I immediately wanted to share these tools as well. Stress affects how we learn and what we can really absorb. Knowing how the brain works and its connection to our body, can help us have tools for relaxing, for dealing with whatever challenges come our way. That's why bringing mindfulness into schools is my passion. Now I have my own business doing that.
