Multilingual Leadership Institute: Centering Language, Culture, & Art
A Retreat in
July 22nd - July 29th, 2023
Lizbeth was asked to co-lead this academic retreat with a group of scholars and educators from Paridad. Paridad is an internationally recognized group of multilingual and multicultural experts that provide a broad range of educational services at the school, district, state, and national levels, with a strong emphasis on content, language, culture and social justice issues.
Lizbeth will be teaching meditation and yoga daily to a large group of academics. Her practice is centered on indigenous contemplative practices and the applications of yoga for the modern practitioner.
We will steep ourselves in the rich culture, fascinating artistic traditions, vibrant history, and linguistic variety found in one of the most beautiful places in the Americas. The city of Oaxaca and its surroundings will serve as our living classroom for a 9-day Institute focused on language, culture, and art through a multilingual leadership perspective. As a UNESCO World Heritage site, Oaxaca will deeply affect the way you approach your multilingual students and how you view the cultural and linguistic assets that students bring to their learning.
