Come wearing green on Sunday 12th March to walk with MELTA in the St Patrick's Day parade. We'll meet at Münchner Freiheit at 12 noon - come and find the MELTA banner.
More information about our position in the parade will be posted very soon. We walk to Wittelsbacher Platz for the festivities this year as Odeonsplatz is being renovated. And don't forget there's a free glass of Guinness for everyone who finishes!

Mindfulness is an ancient concept as well as a modern trend. Its benefits for education and learning are well researched, and mindfulness-based techniques are being implemented in more and more classrooms. In this workshop we’ll explore what mindfulness means, what a mindful meditation practice might involve, and how developing mindful skills can help us and our students to pay attention well and to communicate more effectively.
Your trainer: Jo Westcombe, teacher of English and of yoga, who has begun to tread the path beyond the physical and breathing exercises of yoga towards a regular meditation practice
Your room: 3.140, third floor at Gasteig
Your take-away: hopefully some new insights, as well as some practical ideas and resources for integrating mindful moments – in and out of the classroom
We are pleased to announce an afternoon of workshops from OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
On Friday 19 May From 2.30 - 6.30 pm At Gasteig in room 3.142
