In 2020 we will be coming together for a day of discussion and practice
around the theme of ‘Teaching mindfully’.
Our expert speakers will explore the challenges and rewards of teaching mindfulness to young people in primary schools and secondary schools.
We will be running mindfulness sitting groups throughout the day and providing an opportunity for networking with other teachers in our community to share experiences, and tips for teaching mindfully.
Richard Burnett is co-founder of Mindfulness in Schools Project and co-wrote .b, MiSP’s flagship mindfulness course designed to engage adolescents in the classroom.
Richard is a teacher at Tonbridge School, the first school in the UK to put mindfulness on the curriculum, an event covered broadly by the media in 2010. Since then he has taught mindfulness to well over a thousand adolescents – in classrooms, science labs, libraries, theatres, carparks and fields, and at virtually every time of day.
Richard’s TEDx talk helped define the landscape of mindfulness in education and he was an expert witness at the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mindfulness. He has appeared regularly at conferences, on TV, on radio and in the national and local press to make the case for mindfulness in education.
Having spoken to hundreds of teachers across the educational landscape about the challenges of implementation in schools, Richard will share a sometimes provocative top 10 list of insights for anybody who teaches or wants to teach mindfulness in schools.
