Teaching as a Spiritual Path
About This Event
“One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” ~Malala Yousafzai.
Teaching as a Spiritual Path is a retreat to affirm your own sacred path of teaching. This three day retreat will offer you an opportunity to reconnect with your “why”, to engage with your authentic self, explore your inner landscape, renew your passion and cultivate practices to sustain yourself and inspire others for your personal and professional life.
We will learn secular spiritual pedagogical practices, meditate together, journal, and engage in powerful embodied experiences that will renew our inner resources and return deep meaning and purpose to our lives as educators. The Venerable Pannavati will provide a powerful introduction on our first evening.
*PDU certificates will be offered at the end of the retreat.
