Join Bay Area luminaries for a one-day workshop to deepen the wisdom and skills necessary for teaching the practices mindfulness and compassion to diverse populations of youth. How can these become more relevant, accessible, and applicable to the entire population? We will explore how to create an inclusive culture and what it will take to get us there.
The program will include meditation, contemplation, discussion, and training in particular skills. The morning session will focus on our personal relationships to issues of diversity and how our perceptions affect our work. The afternoon session will involve training in how to teach mindfulness to diverse.
This program is designed for teachers, trainers, and others currently teaching, or interested in teaching, mindfulness and compassion programs to youth. We hope to cultivate greater societal and individual awareness so that we can create a more inclusive culture for the youth in our community.
