Educators Day Retreat in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh
It is with great pleasure that we are writing to let you know we will be holding a Day Retreat for educators at The American School in London, on Saturday, June 15th, from 8.30am to 4.30 pm. The school is close to St. John's Wood tube station on the Jubilee Line.
All teachers, educators and youth workers are warmly invited to come and join us on this special one day retreat. This includes: primary, secondary school teachers, college and university lecturers, special needs teachers / providers, teaching assistants, youth workers and others involved in education.
If you attended one of our earlier retreats for educators, this will be an ideal day to bring friends and colleagues who are involved in mindfulness in education or who would like to find out more about mindfulness for educators.
