Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space lies our freedom and power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.

Thank you for joining me as I work through the assignments for a Mindful Educator Essentials course developed by the Mindful Schools program.

Each week, I will share some of my learning and ask for feedback. Your comments and questions will help me prepare to facilitate mindfulness training in a public school setting.

You can share feedback, comments, and questions via personal message on Ravelry, or by making a post in this thread.
