What to expect?

We are thrilled and honoured that Professor Katherine Weare will be sharing what for her have been key learnings for mindfulness in schools over the years and what the future may hold…

There will also be an opportunity for Katherine to answer questions.  If you personally have a question for Katherine, please email support@mindfulnessinschools.org one week before the event (i.e. by 15th November). We will try to ask as many of these as possible during the session.

This session is set to provide thought provoking reflections from one of the most informed and preeminent mindfulness in schools experts. It will be a chance to come together as a (global) community, including warmly welcoming any familiar and newer faces!
