January 2018


Three Meditative relaxation seminars for stress management were held in Sarajevo on January 22 and 23, 2018 as part of a three-year education program CHILDREN ARE OUR MIRROR: Prevention of peer- and gender-based violence in BH schools, which is being implemented by TPO Foundation in cooperation with three ministries of education from the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In total, 35 teachers and pedagogues from ten elementary schools in Sarajevo Canton participated in the training. The seminars were led by Professor Zilka Spahić-Šiljak.
The goal of the seminars was to familiarize educators with methods of keeping an awakened heart because it helps in reducing the stress and conflict we feel on daily basis. 

Research has shown that an awakened heart is a natural capacity for everyone, while mindfulness can be achieved with continuous practice. The seminar participants were pleased with the fact that they gained knowledge and education aimed at their self-growth as well as growing their teaching expertise.
