Mindfulness-based approach in the classroom Seminar Testimonial and upcoming Classes

Here is the music link for your daily meditation. 

Hi Phe,
Here's my testimonial about the Mindfulness seminar.  
"The Mindfulness Leadership seminar was a wonderful experience for me.  The most valuable thing that I learned and practiced was meditation.  I've found that this practice has really helped to refresh my energy and manage my stress level during the day.  This has helped me to be a more focused teacher and have more patience with my students.  During the seminar, we had two guest speakers who shared their experience and wisdom with us.  It was very interesting to hear their stories and learn their perspectives on Mindfulness and psychology.  I would highly recommend this seminar.  Thank you Phe Bach for teaching us!"

Here is my testimonial.
As educators, our energy is constantly going to our students and our immediate community.  I would arrive home at night completely depleted of energy and not be “present” for my own children.  The course on mindfulness has gently reminded me that there is another way to live.  Meditation is an avenue to refocus my energy for myself and my family.  An additional benefit of this is that I may have more to “give away” to my students; however, my goal is to have more to give myself and my own children at home. Sitting quietly has become a part of my daily routine.  It may not always include all the techniques I have learned in the course, but it does always require me to listen to my inner voice, to acknowledge it and then to let it go.  I will definitely be signing up for more mediation courses.
