As a classroom practice meditation can boost overall health and reduce anxiety and feelings of negativity. It promotes their spiritual development and helps them to deal with the normal stresses of life. The Cineáltas anti- bullying report sees mediation as one of the key actions for preventing and addressing bullying behaviour.
Meditation can be effective as a way of improving student behaviour.
In this short introduction to meditation, we will explore why it works and demonstrate ways that any teacher can use meditation in any classroom.
This webinar is suitable for primary and post-primary teachers and SNAs, especially PP teachers of Religion & SPHE and teachers/SNAs in ASD classes.
At the end of this session, participants will have ideas and skills to implement short mediations in their class specific to age and stage.
Róisín Dignan is an experienced teacher with over 30 years teaching in the classroom. She holds a certificate in teaching meditation, as well as being a practitioner of meditation for many years.
