Mindfulness for Teachers, Staff, and Administrators: Bring Well-Being into the New Year (Bay Area)

Maintaining a caring interest in and engaged enthusiasm for our work requires time to regenerate and recharge. Whether we are K-12 teachers, administrators, or school staff, the effects of stress and depletion can seep into all aspects of our work and often trickle down to those we care about the most. Research shows that mindfulness practices provide powerful antidotes to school-related pressures and rich opportunities to grow in our abilities to manage stress and engage more compassionately with those whose lives we impact.

Start the New Year right at this retreat-like workshop, offering precious time to develop your capacities to be more present and compassionate with students, parents, and colleagues as well as your families and yourselves. This workshop will focus on learning about and practicing simple but effective mindfulness methods that can be incorporated easily into your routine at work and home and also shared with students.

We will be learning how to use the breath to calm the nervous system and focus attention, identify and ease stress and difficult emotions, and intentionally cultivate more kindness and compassion. In addition to learning all of these techniques for future use, participants will experience immediate benefits from our morning together, and will leave feeling relaxed and refreshed.
