The practice of mindful meditation is a popular protection against teachers' stress.

There is a sea of good things - of tranquillity, openness and acceptance - on the planet of meditation, and swimming in that sea, as part of a supportive group, with expert help, can soothe your mind and change your life. Or so they say; but this is NOT what this web-page is about. It's more about dipping your toe into that sea. Maybe taking a paddle.

Busy teachers rarely move beyond the third paragraph unless there questions are answered, so here are the commonest questions?

This section is a brief introduction into the practice and benefits of mindful meditation. It is aimed at busy teachers, so it doesn't deal with any of the cognitive benefits you can gain through discussion of issues in a  group; it doesn't require any equipment or physical skill, it assumes no particular religious our philosophical outlook and it is designed to take no more than five minutes twice a day. It is not intended to be therapeutic in the medical sense; it is simply aimed at giving you a little more calm and clarity of thought in your busy life.

To restate: this is a do-it-yourself taster. For a full experience of mindfulness, you should ideally join a facilitated group, which includes other teachers. It helps, though, to know what to expect before you do so.
