“A Teacher can nourish, can build, healthy, happy human beings” – Thich Nhat Hanh. Filmed in Plum Village Retreat Centre, France in January 2012, during a Mindfulness in Education retreat by the Peace is the Way Film Team. It is for teachers, head teachers, teaching assistants, youth workers, and others involved in education.
Participants gained specific experience and increased their knowledge of practical tools and mindful methods specifically relevant to teachers and others who work with children and young people, and learned how to form and sustain mindful communities in schools, universities, and at home.
They learned from one another and from speakers in their shared professional field of education. Together, they practiced ways to cultivate a more compassionate classroom and school environment.
Facilitated by monks and nuns, the retreat offered the opportunity to practice with and learn from internationally respected peace activist and teacher Thích Nhất Hạnh. During the retreat, they also explored the workings of their bodies and minds and learned how to use the power of silence and self-care to increase clear thinking and action.”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ktcuQZn-hwo
