The 3Rs- Rest, Renewal and Reflection: Mindfulness and Contemplative Practices for Montessorians

Claire Salkowski

In this workshop, Claire Salkowski helps teachers and staff recognize the value and need for cultivating rest, renewal, and reflection in their personal lives so that they can bring the best of themselves to their work daily. Within the framework of the Circle, participants will be guided through a series of queries and exercises to identify their own inner core and most deeply held values which inform and guide their work so that they can truly cultivate peace within. Participants will gain an experience of becoming more mindful and contemplative in their everyday lives. The goal is for those who work with children to recognize the value and need for creating their own space for contemplative learning, growing, and becoming truly mindful as they practise the art of teaching or their own special craft.
