Abiding Heart offers a consultancy service to schools all over the world, Buddhist monasteries, dharma centres, NGOs and INGO’s who are interested in setting up a Buddhist based school or transforming their school into a Buddhist based school using the Abiding Heart Education™️ approach.
This service is available for those who are planning to send their teachers for training in Abiding Heart Education. While this service is separate from the teacher training course it goes hand in hand for those communities who need guidance in how to turn a vision for a Buddhist imbued and contemplative based school into a reality from the planning and design stage to implementation, to making the Abiding Heart Education curriculum work for the school and the community’s own specific needs to assessment and monitoring as the last phase of the consultancy service.

Four schools are currently collaborating with Abiding Heart including Benchen Monastery, Indreni Shwet Barati, Hone I Fa School and Tashi Waldorf School. Eight teachers from Benchen Monastery, six teachers from Indreni Shwet Barati and one head teacher from Hone I Fa School are enrolled in Abiding Heart's teacher training course. In addition to their teacher training these teachers will be offered mentorship about how to implement Abiding Heart Education in their schools.
