Teaching mindfulness

On March 26, PBS held a “webinar” (web seminar) for teachers, on the subject of “teaching mindfulness.” Filmmaker David Grubin showed clips from his new film, The Buddha, which premiers on April 7, and talked about making the film and what he hopes audiences, particularly teachers and students, will take away from it.

Mirabai Bush, Associate Director and Senior Fellow at The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, spoke about using the film as an educational resource and provided an overview of research on the effects of mindfulness on learning.

Educator Peter Brown shared resources and strategies for teaching about the Buddha and Buddhism in a Comparative Religion course, and Dr. Amy Saltzman discussed methods for teaching secular mindfulness. Participants also learned about educational resources available on the companion website for the film.
