In response to an invitation sent by the Ministry of Education, about 80 Principals & Heads of International & Private schools attended the Sati Pasela introduction program at the Light of Asia Foundation. Participants were from all religions and ethnic groups, and they had traveled from as far as Badulla, Galle & Kandy. The program was conducted in English by Deepal Sooriyarachchi, and the interaction & enthusiastic engagement were extremely encouraging. Many Principals requested that mindfulness programs be conducted for teachers in their schools. Some had decided then and there to include mindfulness as a component in their daily time table.
We recorded some comments from a few participants, and have published the links below. Light of Asia Foundation had introduced some novel organic refreshments for the participants after the session finished.
