I recently heard a story about a teacher who was instructing on laziness. He proceeded to tell his students that there are 2 kinds of lazy. One is the kind where a person just sits around doing nothing...

 

Editor's Note: This piece is short, but meaningful. In yoga one tries to be present and practice mindfulness. The author, Deborah Adele, tells an anecdote that leaves you reflecting on your own ability to be present.

 

Yoga


by Kimberly Knapp MA, LPC

I am a Psychology Instructor at two colleges, and I teach how to record, interpret, and understand dreams in the classroom. The students have a wonderful time analyzing their dreams, and we usually maintain an active discussion filled with curiosity.

Dreams are our communication with our inner mind, and allow us to understand ourselves through the use of symbols called the Universal Language of Mind. We are all connected in subconscious mind...

 

 

Dream Medicine


by Tara Hornich-Lisciandro

Standardized tests, course exams, homework, after-school sports and activities, part-time jobs—many of our students live very busy and pressure-packed lives. As educators, we teach them how to better organize all of the “stuff” in their lives, but we rarely teach our students how to organize their thoughts and soothe their anxieties. Often, the stress of their daily lives accumulates until a “worry ball” forms...

Tell me a story.

Yoga


by Lisa McCourt

I’m seeing a lot of suffering lately around marriages that are falling apart. And it makes me feel downright rebellious. Not only because of the tremendous obstacles I had to stare down when creating my own original paradigm for divorce, but now on behalf of my smart, kind, competent students getting totally unraveled by what I consider absolutely unnecessary, erroneous, and archaic notions about marriage and nature of human partnership...

 

Editor's Note from Lisa McCourt: To follow up on my recent post about my freakishly-customized divorce, I want to share a misperception I see frequently with my Joy-Training clients . . . one that has me raising a new flag for divorce-reform! Endings can be as beautiful and natural as beginnings if we train ourselves to see them that way.

Editor's Note from Susan de Wardt: Too many people lose their interest in poetry during high school. Not so for the students of Austin Glanville. Enjoy this video composite of his sophomore high school students who are turned on to poetry for self-expression. Very exciting to see young people connect with poetic language. They really get it - thanks to a passionate teacher.

 

Writing & Poetry Therapy


by Donna Jacobs Sife

Personal stories – when teachers tell stories about themselves as children, or as fallible adults, apart from building an intimacy between themselves and their students, their students can also often feel safe to admit to their own fallibilities and internal struggles, particularly if the anecdotes and memories are those of a struggle, a misunderstanding or a reaction to living in a diverse society...

 

Editor's Note from Michael Williams: The value of storytelling for diversity and cross-cultural education cannot be overestimated. Storytelling can build relationships, develop empathy and understanding of cultures, develop language, connect with traditions, heal grievances, impart values and ethics, and speak of difficult things in a safe and accessible way.
