Seminar on mindfulness comes to SCS Nov. 13

Shelburne resident Marilyn Neagley will present a free seminar on mindfulness to all interested adult community members in the Shelburne Community School (SCS) Library on Tuesday evening, Nov. 13, at 7 pm. This presentation will be of particular interest to parents and caregivers of children at SCS, where mindfulness training has recently been introduced and integrated into parts of the curriculum.

Neagley will introduce mindfulness to attendees and show how mindfulness can look when introduced to a classroom. Once parents and caregivers understand the benefits of mindfulness, they can help reinforce the exercises children are learning in the classroom at home.

Neagley is the director of Talk About Wellness ( and co-editor of “Educating from the Heart” ( She has led three in-service trainings for SCS and has most recently presented at the Vermont School Counselors’ Conference and at the Vermont Association for the Education of Young Children.

This seminar is presented by the SCS PTO as part of its mission to strengthen the partnership between the home and the school. Neagley’s presentations are sponsored by grants from the Ferguson Foundation and Holly Bartlett Johnson of Wind Ridge Publishing.
