PROFESSIONAL TRAINING FOR SCHOOL MINDFULNESS TEACHERS
Ser Integral: Portuguese Mindfulness Center organizes in partnership with MISP (Mindfulness in Schools Project) the Teach .b training in a residential format for teachers and school staff that wish to bring a mindfulness program to schools.
.b PROGRAM (11th-18th)
Teach .b course is a 4-day training course which prepares participants who have met the prerequisites to teach the 10-lesson .b curriculum to 11-18-year-olds in schools, or other educational or youth-related organisations.
Find more about the curriculum here.
Participants will be taught the lessons in ‘real time’ with opportunities to discuss the pedagogy of each lesson and how it can best be taught to a group of young people in different settings. There will also be opportunities to work with other participants guiding them, and being guided by them, in the main mindfulness practices from the lessons.
Please note: This course does not qualify those who take part to go on and train others to deliver the curriculum. Nor may they share the teaching resources with others. If your place on a Teach Paws b or Teach .b course is going to be funded by your school or other organisation, we recommend you make this clear to them before enrolling for this course. For further information, please see the Terms and Conditions.

Casa da Torre, Soutelo, Vila Verde, Braga, Portugal (info here)
The accommodation at Casa da Torre is in individual and double rooms with private bathroom. The rooms are not luxurious, but rather very simple with all the comfort for you to have a pleasant and peaceful stay during the retreat. The Center has several gardens in the exterior that you can use during the entire duration of the training. It also has a beautiful terrace with an amazing view over an extensive natural area.
* Casa da Torre is a Jesuit Monastery and the choice of this type of retreat center is not because of the religious thematic of the place, which is not essential for a mindfulness training but rather because it meets several criteria that we find important for a mindfulness training: silence, simplicity, high number of single rooms with private bathrooms available and great quality of the meals (variables that are requested for many of the people that are interested in our services)
Meals are vegetarian and they will include: complete breakfast, lunch and dinner.
If you need any special adaptation in terms of meals please let us know.
