Happy teachers change the world
Author: Thich Naht Hanh - K. Weare
The greatest talent of a teacher, Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us, is to "be happy". The good news is that "happiness is a habit that each of us can learn." Thanks to the art of transforming difficulties and cultivating happiness in daily life, every teacher can offer immediate benefits to themselves, their colleagues and students. Only if a teacher is happy can he help his students find happiness: this is why this book proposes mindfulness practices that can help educators and their students to develop greater harmony with themselves and with others, thus acquiring the ability. to reduce their tensions and develop trust, compassion, focus and joy, both personally and collectively. Written together with English teacher Katherine Weare, this volume is the first manual that summarizes in a single text the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village community on mindfulness in school and in the educational process in general. Adopting a practical point of view, devoid of religious or sectarian connotations, the authors offer inspiration and guidance to educators working at all levels of education, from childhood to university. Foreword by Jon Kabat-Zinn.
