Method

This is holistic approach to professional development that combines instructional practices, strategies and tools from the field of mindfulness and social justice pedagogy.

Mindfulness reduces stress, cultivates  well-being, compassion and receptivity. Social justice pedagogy raises critical consciousness and teaches how we can create a safe, just and inclusive learning community.

The method is organized around the Three Domains for Peak Learning Experience. Peak Learning Experience is associated with  heightened awareness, creativity and potential. It is about becoming aware of truth and our infinite capacity to determine the shape and content of our daily lives.

Professional learning designed for Peak Learning Experience involves integrating contemplative practices for inner learning and reflection, while simultaneously creating the conditions for safe and authentic human interaction for meaning making and purposeful, responsible social action.
