The Center for Mindful Inquiry, in collaboration with Antioch University New England Center for School Renewal and Barre Center for Buddhist Studies, announces the opening of the application process for the 2013 Cohort for the Certificate Program in Mindfulness for Educators.
The nine graduate credit Certificate Program combines opportunities for educators to deepen their own mindfulness and compassion practices and to better understand current theories that connect mindfulness to models of teaching, learning and human development.
Certificate Program participants take three graduate level courses over the course of a calendar year. Each course consists of both a face-to-face study retreat and an online course of study in order to strengthen both the learning community and the group dynamics of the cohort. Additionally, the combination of face-to-face and online study helps focus the participants on the integration of mindfulness practice and theory in their work as educators and in everyday life.
Graduate credits are given with the successful completion of each course. The Certificate is earned by the completion of all three courses of the program.
