Weekend Course:Teaching with the Virtues (United Kingdom)

TEACHING WITH THE VIRTUES

Liverpool Baha’i Centre
5 Langdale Road, Liverpool L15 3LA
8 p.m. Friday 19th – 2 p.m. Sunday 21st November, 2010

This 2 day course is based on the Five Strategies of The Virtues Project , an International company that was founded in 1991 by three concerned individuals who felt called to do something to counteract rising violence among youth and families.

The Five Strategies of The Virtues Project help us to live more reverent, purposeful lives, to raise children of integrity and compassion, develop a culture of character in our schools, and inspire excellence and service in the workplace. These strategies build foundations for safe and caring communities.

Virtues such as Love, Kindness, Justice, Service, Trustworthiness and Respect are universally valued by people of all faiths and cultures. They offer ways to renew and deepen our connection with the values that benefit all our interactions and awaken the gems within us in order that we may live to our highest values and become the noble beings we truly are.

Aimed at: Anyone who is involved with and/or interested in Education and Spiritual/Moral values regardless of culture, race or Faith group.

Facilitator: Diana Macpherson has many years experience in virtues based education in three continents both in schools as well as communities. She will share real scenarios resulting from the implementation and practice of the virtues strategies that have led to the decrease in violence and bullying, the raising of self-esteem and self-worth and the creation of a harmonious, peaceful, orderly environment in which children and adults can live, learn and work.

Accommodation: Residents- Shared rooms £60, Single occupancy £80, Non-residents £30.

Included in the price: All meals and break refreshments, except the Friday evening meal.

Additional Costs: 50 pence for copied handouts.
