CILT Nashville & USN | Mindful Living Series 2015-2016
Center for Integrative Learning & Teaching
University School of Nashville
CILT & USN believe in the transformative power of mindfulness. Since 2009, they have intentionally built programs that have trained teachers, implemented mindful classrooms and hosted community educational experiences – including mindful parenting classes and educator-focused trainings. This Mindful Living Series is an offering to the Nashville community for those who want to strengthen their personal practice, gain life skills in managing an increasingly challenging culture, and who want to take that work back to the populations they serve.
Please join Mindfulness Facilitators, Mary Agee & Shelly Sowell for this life-deepening practice!
