The final batch of teachers from the National Schools in the Western Province (total 72) were introduced to mindfulness through the Sati Pasela program at the Light of Asia Foundation on February 20th. About 100 teachers from Grades 6- 8 participated.
Mindfulness (sitting and walking) was practiced with guidance by Deepal Sooriyarachchi. Initially the teachers were briefed on the importance & benefits of mindfulness in their daily work at school and home.
Voice recordings were obtained from few teachers who participated and these are published with some photographs of the event.
A dancing monkey on the roof tops of the Light of Asia Foundation provided a live demonstration to the participants, of our commonly unmindful ‘monkey minds’.!
