If you’re a full-time teacher at an accredited K-12 school, or enrolled in a M.Ed. program, here’s an opportunity to get funding to attend summer retreats at the Garrison Institute. The Hemera Foundation is offering Contemplative Fellowships to “support educators’ growth through contemplative practice in a retreat setting… cultivate mindfulness, compassion, personal wellbeing, and professional efficacy, and, in turn, embody and apply these qualities to promote positive school cultures.” Eligible retreats here include our Dzogchen retreat, July 11-19; Nonviolent Communication, July 19-26; Focusing Summer Institute, August 15-21; and Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, August 22-28. More information and application materials are posted here. The application deadline is March 21, 2014.
