Understanding a child’s brain development is invaluable, and can help anyone—teachers and students alike—support the development of stronger, more resilient minds. In this class, we will explore the neuroplasticity of a child’s brain, that quality that allows it to change in response to life experience. Educators can use this information to become more aware, more mindful, about the way thoughts and energy flow, not just within ourselves, but also from person to person.
This is a three-session master class. In the first two sessions, teachers learn from the master. In the third, participants have a rare and valuable opportunity to exchange ideas with other brilliant teachers. Participants are assigned a small amount of homework to prepare for each session.
