Mindfulness + Self-Care: Workshops for Teachers and Caregivers
Cultivate an environment where everyone flourishes.
Developing mutual trust and reliance between teacher/caregivers, clients/students, and co-workers, is a necessary foundation on which successful institutions are built. Helping teachers and caregivers build resilience and reduce stress promotes stronger relationships through better communication, patience, and kindness. We can help you create conditions in which everyone can learn to support and encourage each other to learn, grow, and thrive with mindfulness meditation and compassion practices taught by experienced teachers.
Our workshops include:
· The basics of mindfulness meditation
· Working with thoughts and emotions that arise
· Being present for body sensations, including tension and pain
· Mindful eating and mindful movement exercises
· Appreciating and supporting positive intentions
· Understanding self-care
· Developing self-compassion
· Preventing burn-out and compassion fatigue
· Using mindfulness and compassion in communication and interaction
· Support for a daily meditation practice
We can design a program to your needs, which can be an afternoon workshop, a daylong retreat, or a series of weekly meetings. We can also train individuals from your staff to learn to lead daily meditations to insure ongoing practice support for your community.
