The Mindful Education Institute’s (MEI) year-long teacher training is a journey of self-discovery and awakening as well as a path to becoming a skilled and creative mindfulness educator. MEI’s goal is to support the real-world implementation of mindfulness-based programming for youth in diverse environments including K-12 schools, foster care facilities, juvenile detention centers, and community-based sites. With mindfulness, social and emotional literacy, empathy training, and other awareness-based practices, educators around the world are helping youth to cultivate insight, compassion, attention, and other skills that have the capacity to transform their lives, families, and societies. MEI draws together preeminent teachers to offer you the most comprehensive, supportive, and dynamic mindfulness and education training available. Mindfulness is the radical notion of opening to the truth of what is happening right here and now, which allows life to be marked by openness, courage and deep compassion. Research shows that mindfulness decreases stress, attention deficit issues, depression, anxiety, and hostility in children, while benefiting their health, well-being, social relations, and academic performance. Children can easily learn these techniques, and when learned young, they become lifelong tools. The core aspect of becoming a good mindfulness teacher is cultivating ones own practice. Much of the retreat time, talks, and projects will be focused on deepening personal mindfulness practice and identifying ways to become more present and empathic in relation to the individual’s population. MEI believes that the facilitator is 99% of what makes the intervention effective; the curriculum is 1%. A big focus of the MEI training will be getting participants more comfortable in their own skin, more improvisational, and dynamic in teaching.
