Description

Class Experience

By the end of this course, learners will learn a posture conducive to meditation and 9 meditative practices that will make them more mindful of the present moment.
 I've studied and practiced meditation in three different traditions (Vipassana, Kadampa Buddhism, and Shambhala) for more than 15 years and participated in many meditation retreats: 10- day silent retreats, 7-day retreats, weekend-long retreats where we sat and did...Nothing.  Basically, we just tended to our object of meditation (breath, body sensations, love, the blue sky, etc), observed it in silence. Based on the positive changes meditation has brought about in my life and my son's life, I have become an avid believer in its power to create healthy, balanced minds.  Moreover, I hold a Master’s in Education with an emphasis in TESOL. I have vast experience working with children of all ages. I taught English in kindergarten for two years; I also taught elementary, middle, and high school for another two years. In addition, I worked as a nanny in Germany and taught English to international babysitters. I worked as a volunteer with foster children. I have been teaching meditation to my son for two years and have been coaching him on school projects.
You will need a notebook, a pencil or pen.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.

About Me

“The role of education is for children to understand the world around them—that’s clearly essential—and the world within them so that they can become compassionate, fulfilled, and engaged individuals.” Sir Ken Robinson
