Nearly one hundred teacher educators and teacher leaders from across the US and Canada, and from as far away as Israel and Colombia, participated the Garrison Institute’s Contemplative Teaching and Learning (CTL) Initiative’s annual symposium.  Held in late November with generous support from the 1440 Foundation and Lostand Foundation, this year’s meeting was entitled “Mindfulness in Education: Promoting the Social and Emotional Competencies of Educators.” It was a rich exploration of how mindfulness and other contemplative practices might be used to transform teacher education, and by extension, public education.
