Compassion article from Communique’
Note from speaker: Several folks asked for the reference to the stress management text I’d praised: It’s Jonathan Smith’s “Stress Management: A Comprehensive Handbook of Techniques and Strategies.” It’s been around for 10 years so can be found for under $30 new if you shop around a bit.
Those who attended the first session witnessed a meltdown of the hotel’s audio equipment, making most videos not playable. Email email@example.com with requests for any video examples you’d like to see and I’ll provide.
Stay tuned: I’m fine-tuning a curriculum with a group this early spring, that will be offered free to KASP members: I’m hoping to publish it in the Communique, and shortly thereafter it will be in the KASP newsletter. I’ll email the member’s list when available. I’m happy to partner with you (e.g., consult via Skype?) if you’d like help in in offering mindfulness interventions to children in your school!
