thought it might be useful to group together the guest posts here at, and I thought 'mindful teachers' might be interested in the guest posts I've written. 

Book excerpts and guest posts here at, by experienced teachers and teacher trainers. (I accept a very limited number of guest posts; if you're interested in writing for Mindful Teachers, please see the FAQs before contacting me.)
