Mindful Educator Retreat Information

Immerse yourself in a day of self-care and mindfulness meditation practices that restore a sense of balance, vitality, and overall nourishment to a fragmented and burned out nervous system that has endured the impact of the educational profession. In this retreat, you will directly experience mindfulness and cultivate the skills to:

  • Develop a personal mindfulness meditation practice• Enhance personal social emotional development
  •  Experience the direct effects of gratitude and mindfulness through the practices of gentle yoga, mindful walking, mindful eating, and journaling
  • How to incorporate mindfulness into daily classroom setting
  •  Build a network community of mindful educators through co-learning activities and resources

The intentions of this retreat are to build a capacity of personal support to foster a change in the way educators offer a learning experience by placing student and teacher well-being first in order to add greater connections and meaning to the teaching profession.  By developing teachers with social emotional competence, we in turn develop better students with the same qualities.
