Glimpses of the EARCOS Weekend Workshop at ASB

Tuesday, September 26, 2017 - 11:00 to Monday, October 9, 2017 - 11:00

The weekend of September 23rd and 24th, The American School of Bangkok Sukhumvit Campus hosted teachers from different international schools throughout Bangkok as well as from neighboring countries within Asia for an EARCOS ‘Mindfulness in the Classroom’ Weekend Workshop. Current academic research indicates that mindfulness practice in the classroom can positively impact student behavior, academic achievement, physical health and emotional well-being.  During the EARCOS Workshop teachers explored and discussed these current research findings and the neuroscience that supports the implementation of mindfulness in K-12 education. Teachers practiced mindful exercises to apply within their own classrooms as well as differing grade levels. Workshop presenters were Dr. Larry Ward and Dr. Peggy Rowe, who have both worked to implement mindfulness programs throughout the U.S. and Thailand.  Peggy and Larry co-wrote Love’s Garden: A Guide to Mindful Relationships.
