As part of The Life Gardening Project, Awakening Minds brings the power of creativity to teaching. By working through experiential exercises that expand your awareness, lead to new choices, and cultivate change, you will become a more creative teacher. Learn to think with a more playful mind, so novel ideas for teaching come quickly. Realize your gifts for teaching and how to use them as “creativity tools.” Motivate your students to learn and participate by creating experiential exercises that awaken and engage their minds. Discover the power of “deep listening”; and “strategic questioning” to foster understanding, compassion, and change. Learn the value of being “coachable” and how to effectively coach your students. Cultivate more balance and wisdom so teaching becomes easier, more compelling, and more satisfying. As your creativity expands, it will affect how you think, teach, and live. Teaching will become more interesting and fun. Your enjoyment and effectiveness as a teacher will grow as you find creative ways to inspire your students to learn.
