Geneva offers meditation workshops for teachers who want to explore bringing meditation into their classrooms. Stress and anxiety is on the rise within children of all ages. This stress not only affects children on a personal level, but also impedes their ability to focus on their learning. Meditation is a proven and safe technique to decrease stress increase well-being. Non-denominational meditation techniques are easily incorporated into multi-faith classrooms to improve creativity, focus, attention, and memory.
In these workshops, teachers are given numerous meditation resources and scripts for four guided meditations that they can begin using in the classroom the next day. The science behind meditation is explored and a short experiment is conducted to show the results of meditation. This experiment can be introduced to students to demonstrate the benefits of meditation versus other recreation like video games or television. Lateral learning is incorporated into this workshop, and ample time is given for teachers to share their experiences with meditation and to discuss ideas for bringing meditation to their students.
