Mindfulness/Meditation Drop-In Sessions for Primary and Post Primary Teachers

"Teaching, like any truly human activity, emerges from one's inwardness, for better or worse. As I teach I project the condition of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together. The entanglements I experience in the classroom are often no more or less that the convolutions of my inner life. Viewed for this angle, teaching holds a mirror to the soul. If I am willing to look in that mirror and not run from what I see, I have a chance to gain self-knowledge-and knowing myself is as crucial to good teaching as knowing my students and my subject." - Parker J. Palmer

Mindfulness Kilkenny and Kilkenny Education Centre are pleased to offer weekly Mindfulness/Meditation sessions for teachers - January (18th and 25th), February (1st, 9th and 22nd) and March (8th and 15th).
