|EDUC 230 - METHODS OF CONTEMPLATIVE EDUCATION FOR CHILDREN AND YOUTH|
This course is designed to teach the knowledge and skills necessary to teach mindfulness practices to PreK-12 students in both academic and other environments. The course focuses on experiential teaching methods to cultivate both “formal” and “informal” mindfulness practices as a foundation for the
cultivation ofpsychological and emotional resilience that can be effectively utilized across the life span. I Yoga is the central mindfulness practice for children, as it integrates the developmental physiological “need to move” of children and young adults. The course integrates the “minds-0n”, secular practice of paying attention to the moment, on purpose and without judgement. Students will select a track that addresses the age levels with which they wish to work, but will also learn about the ﬁlll arch of child development.
