Professional Development Programs for Educators, Leaders, & Staff
Build your team's resilience toolkit with mindfulness and self-compassion.
Anxiety, stress, and burnout have reached epidemic levels in education, and as a result, far too many K-12 professionals leave before they've even really begun. Fortunately, we are learning that there are specific skills that we can cultivate to increase our resilience and wellbeing, and thereby also improve our performance and enjoyment of our work.
Many school-based resilience and wellbeing programs focus on the kids. The folks who run the classroom, the school, and the district are often left out of the wellbeing equation.
resilient leaders + resilient teachers + resilient staff = resilient students
Whether your school is embracing mindfulness already, you're developing the language to explore integration, or you only want to commit to the wellbeing of your people, we can help. Our programs demystify mindfulness and self-compassion, provide the scientific support, and offer specific practical tools for integrating them into work and life.
Each program, delivered onsite, includes:
Guided instruction: in a wide range of practices, including sitting mindfulness meditation, mindful movement, body scan meditation, mindful communication, self-compassion breaks, and more.
Applications: in personal and business lives and relationships
Scientific foundations: of mindfulness & self-compassion
Strategies: for creating and sustaining one’s own practice
Resources: including handout materials, practice recommendations, and references
We offer workshops and customized programs for teachers & staff as well as district-wide leadership.
Program options include:
