One of the challenges we have as mindfulness educators is creating a mindfulness culture within the communities we work with. In an educational context this means working with administrators, teachers, students, and parents. It means identifying and addressing the needs of multiple stakeholders in a way that is effective and sustainable for them and for ourselves.

In this workshop we’ll use the Little Flower Yoga’s Mindful Mondays as a case study to explore setting intentions, identifying the needs of our communities, naming allies, and to get clear about the commitments we can make as part of a sustainable plan.

In this interactive session we will:

  •       Identify our intentions for doing this work
  •       Identify stakeholder and the needs they face
  •       Identify allies and partners to support us
  •       Design a plan that can help us meet our intentions with integrity and without sacrificing our well-being
