CEI to Present at Principals Conference July 11 in Philadelphia

By Christine Mason, CEI Executive Director

Mindfulness: Healing Trauma with the School Compassionate Culture Analytic Tool in Heart Centered Learning Communities

Tuesday, July 11, 7:30-8:45 am, Room 103B at the National Principals Conference in Philadelphia, PA

Participants engage in exercises to learn about trauma, mindfulness and S-CCATE (School Compassionate Cultural Analytic Tool for Educators) as the foundation for creating heart centered communities based on the principles of the 5Cs (consciousness, compassion, confidence, courage and community) of learning. This provides a path for students to thrive, flourish and heal.  This session is based on developmental work and research that CEI has been conducting over the past 5 years and a forth-coming book by Drs. Mason, Michele Rivers Murphy and Yvette Jackson on Mindfulness and Heart Centered Learning.  If you are coming to this conference, look us up!

Participants will receive the S-CCATE Heart Centered Learning Sampler– a sample of activities that we use as we work with “Core Learning Teams” (Peter Senge, 2012) in schools.
