bringing mindfulness into education

Being a teacher in the world of today is a demanding job with lots of challenges, often resulting in stress and burn-out. Is there a solution?

In the film ‘Happy Teachers Will Change the World’ we see Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh sharing the practice of mindfulness with 1300 teachers during a retreat in Canada. The teachers are invited to come back home to themselves through mindful walking, breathing, eating, total relaxation and noble silence. Looking deeply into their personal suffering, and sharing it in a group, they are able to transform it. Are they ready to go back to the classroom, to create a ripple effect of happiness into 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.

Also available at the Plum Village Online channel on YouTube, with subtitles in ten different languages.
