bringing mindfulness into education

Both the teachers and students of today face a lot of challenges, like work load, stress, lack of attention, etc. How to transform the current educational system – and thereby the world?

In the film Happy Teachers will change the World in Barcelona we see Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh sharing the practice of mindfulness with 600 teachers during a retreat at the University of Barcelona. The teachers are invited to come back to themselves by practicing mindful walking, mindful breathing, mindful eating, total relaxation and noble silence. Looking deeply into their personal suffering, and sharing it in a group, they are able to transform themselves. Are they ready to go back to the classroom, to create a ripple effect of happiness in the world, starting with themselves and their students?

This film is suitable for any person who wants to cultivate happiness and freedom in his/her life, both teachers and non-teachers.
