30 Aug The Advent in England!

Yoga Teacher & Librarian Present at International Conference

Two of Advent’s teachers traveled to England this summer to present at a conference. Yoga and Meditation teacher Michelle Bissanti and Librarian Katie Posey presented at the Spirituality and the Whole Child Conference at Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, England. This conference was attended by professionals from 15 different countries.

Michelle’s presentation,”Nurturing the Body, Mind, and Heart of Children Through the Practice of Yoga and Meditation”, highlighted her work developing the yoga and meditation program at Advent. The presentation explored the importance that these practices play in the development of the whole child. Katie presented on how literature can nurture the spirituality of a child in a school library.

Here are some photos from their trip.
