Join Blue Cliff monastics and senior lay teachers from the tradition of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh for this special retreat that brings together teachers, administrators, social workers and others in the field of education. The retreat will help participants cultivate their own personal mindfulness practice and develop the language and skills needed to bring the practice back to the communities they serve. They will also learn effective methods to enhance focus, attention, and concentration inside and outside the classroom. 

Learn and explore mindfulness practices including:
- Sitting meditation
- Mindful eating
- Walking meditation
- Deep relaxation
- Circle sharing
- Loving speech & deep listening
- Beginning anew (conflict resolution)
