The Important Role of the Teacher

Although teachers do not require any previous experience of mindfulness, it is essential that those delivering Mindfulness for Kits bring a spirit of curiosity, enthusiasm and commitment to the course.

Why?

The role of the teacher in Mindfulness for Kits is, as in any other subject, vital to the process of bringing understanding and the engagement of their children to the subject being taught whether mathematics or mindfulness.  Without the teacher embodying the practice and practicing with the children and acting thereby as a role model, the effectiveness of the course will be much reduced.

The training day and the resources within Mindfulness for Kits will provide a comprehensive background to Mindfulness and the related tools, but if teachers would like further information on mindfulness we recommend ‘Mindfulness, a practical guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World,’ Mark Williams and Danny Penman. Piatkus or for an easier, but still excellent read, ‘Mindfulness Plain and Simple’, Oli Doyle. Orion.
