Stressed? Check out our newest guide, Zen Teaching and Teaching Zen


mindfulnessIt’s a rewarding profession, but let’s face it, being an educator is a huge responsibility. That said, it’s easy to forget that we’re not the only ones who are trying to negotiate pressure in our daily lives—our students are, too. This is exactly why we put together our most recent guide, Zen Teaching and Teaching Zen: Mindfulness in the Classroom.

When teachers are fully present (that is, when they are mindful) in their classrooms, they can’t help but be more effective. The same goes for students. You know what it looks like when students are in the moment. You can visualize it right now. You also know what it looks like when students are tired, disengaged, and discouraged.

But have you stopped what you were doing to be fully mindful of these experiences?

To be mindful, all you and your students need to have is a willingness to take notice of where you are, what you are doing and how you are responding to it.

Inside our guide, you’ll find short exercises and engaging classroom activities that will help you and your students do just this!

We hope that you and your students enjoy it! Click here or on the icon below to download the guide.
