Week 1: Dubrovnik, Croatia – Critical Thinking & Mindfulness – Discover the Present Moment & Explore Complex Issues (5 days)
In the historic city of Dubrovnik, delve into the realms of critical thinking and mindfulness. This intensive five-day course combines the ancient wisdom of mindfulness with modern techniques for critical thinking. Participants will learn to approach complex issues with clarity, curiosity, and a present-moment awareness that fosters deeper understanding.
The participants will learn the concept of ‘reaction vs response’ and utilize it to discover the present moment. The art of thinking will be considered to enhance compassion and successful collaboration. The concept of listening will be presented and intertwined with the art of having a meaningful conversation. We will create discussions for students, where they can put their knowledge into practice, develop their own views on classroom content, and consolidate what they’ve learned.
Our participants will put on their critical thinking lenses and power through concepts such as problem solving and facts vs opinions. Mindfulness will be presented in the classroom & in the nature to learn to turn on all senses and generate a more positive classroom atmosphere. The present state of mind leads students to consider arguments & counter-arguments, develop a logical outline of their argument, and visualize how their ideas fit together.
