Gerry is a trained teacher in Paws b, a classroom based mindfulness programme for 7-11 year olds. Paws b was designed by teachers for teachers, and at the most simple level is an awareness-raising exercise to give all students a taste of mindfulness so that they know about it and can return to it later in life if they choose to do so.
The curriculum was co-developed by teachers with students in Wales alongside a senior mindfulness teacher and trainer with the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University in Wales (where Gerry is did his masters) one of the most renowned institutions for mindfulness research and practice. Thousands of children have been taugh this curriculum in schools across the UK and further afield.
Gerry will be teaching this programme at international schools in his home-base of Vilanculos this year.
