6 Points of Mindful Speaking and Listening (Part 1)
About This Resource
Download exercises, PP and lesson to introduce children to practice of Mindful Speaking and Listening based on Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche’s 6 Points of Mindful Speech, developed over the course of studies at Naropa University. I have utilized with middle grade and high school level students. They have a wide range of applications in English Language Arts:
- A Contemplative approach: Introduces utilizing speaking and listening as a point of contemplation, a useful skill in self-calming and a way to develop compassion.
- An English studies approach: Supports students to self-calm as speaker and introduces opportunity to be at home in and utilize silence and helps develop a balanced skill in being a speaker and a listener (helps in presenting and collaboration ELA works).
Note: This can be modified for younger students/children
