Still Quiet Place: 10-Week Online Practicum for K-12 Educators and Allied Professionals | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
This practicum is designed for educators and allied professionals who are interested in offering mindfulness to children and adolescents — to support them 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.


Priority participation will be given to those with:
  • Experience working/playing with children.
  • An established daily mindfulness practice.
  • Mindfulness retreat experience.
