Embodied Teaching™ at Unified Mindfulness

For Teachers, for Parents . . . for Kids

Discover how to train yourself and your students concurrently in three core attentional skills that are foundational to ALL social-emotional learning.

Unified Mindfulness is Proud to Offer THE FIRST EVER Course on Embodied Teaching™  

Embodied Teaching™ (ET) is an innovative, practical approach to mindfulness interventions in the classroom that offers teachers maximum flexibility with minimal time investment in additional coursework.
ET is not a substitute for other mindfulness or social-emotional learning training programs or curricula; rather, it is a complement and catalyst for successful implementation of such programs.
This inaugural course in the Embodied Teaching™ approach will be taught by its founder and developer, Marcy Crawford.

Marcy Crawford 

The Embodied Teaching™ approach was designed by mindfulness in education expert Marcy Crawford after years of volunteer work with all stakeholder groups related to education and a pilot study in multiple grade levels over an entire school year.
As a mindfulness trainer, parent, and school board president, Marcy noticed that teachers were regularly unsatisfied with their social-emotional and mindfulness curricula. As a Senior Teacher of Unified Mindfulness, she knew that something was missing, and set her sights on bridging the gap in understanding that was preventing educators from getting the results out of their mindfulness programs that research has shown are available: reduced burnout in teachers, improved academics in students, and lower stress levels reported for all stakeholder groups.

How is this training different?

Instead of giving you a curriculum and lesson plans to implement, we teach you exactly how to inhabit your mindfulness lessons so that you are embodying the core principles of all successful social-emotional learning and mindful communication, leading to better outcomes for you and your students regardless of where you wind up on any given day, in any given conversation.
This is a unique opportunity to learn directly from Marcy this summer as she leads all 6 hours of this inaugural Embodied Teaching™ course.

As many educators know, being clear about what something is not can be helpful to a more complete understanding of what it is, so here’s what Embodied Teaching™ is NOT:

A passive learning experience

A panacea for all classroom challenges

Embodied Teaching™ is realistic about the dynamics of multiple factors that impact learning environments, which enables you to be clearer about where and how you can directly affect change

A collection of platitudes and ideas that only sound good in theory

Embodied Teaching™ is a pragmatic approach that provides effective strategies and adheres to the ethical principle of only addressing those areas in which we have expertise

A quick fix

Most SEL and mindfulness curricula can have immediate desired impacts, but real change takes time.
