Our passion to deeply care and educate children and adolescents is one of our great gifts. Being in direct contact with students who are struggling and suffering places us at a greater risk of compassion fatigue. Together we will assess your level of fatigue and learn intentional practices to take care of ourselves. Beyond basic self care, this workshop moves deeply into protective practices to maintain or restore your mental health and well-being.

Resmaa Menakem reminds us, “Resilience is not a thing or an attribute, but a flow. It moves through the body, and between multiple bodies when they are harmonized.” During this retreat, we will look inward in order to cultivate wisdom and perspective across generational terrain. We will harmonize our healing and build both individual and collective resilience that we can carry into our personal and professional lives.
The experience of teachers is complex and non-linear. One day teachers can feel successful and optimistic and the next they can feel frustrated and fractured. This session is designed to equip teachers with tools that they can use for reflection in order to better identify what helps them feel successful, confident and capable in the classroom.
