Program: School Improvement

Audience: Teachers, counselors, psychologists, nurses

Dates: 11/5/2019 to 1/13/2020

Wait List
"From elementary schools to psychotherapy offices, mindfulness meditation is an increasingly mainstream practice. At the same time, trauma remains a fact of life: the majority of us will experience a traumatic event in our lifetime, and up to 20% of us will develop post-traumatic stress. This means that anywhere mindfulness is being practiced, someone in the room is likely to be struggling with trauma. This raises a crucial question for mindfulness teacher, trauma professionals, and survivors everywhere: How can we minimize the potential dangers of mindfulness for survivors while leveraging its powerful benefits?" I am excited for us to share this book study journey over the next few months through five meetings. We will have two in-person meetings and three meetings via Zoom. Together, we will read and discuss the content of this book and how to apply our knowledge to our environments. We will lean on each other for tough questions and celebrate our growth in mindset around trauma, education, and how best to support every student's emotional and behavioral needs. The power of our book study lies in the flexibility of using an online platform to connect meaningfully and likely from the comforts of our homes. Most importantly, you are committing to a unique book study opportunity along with the expectations and responsibilities outlined at our Smore newsletter link below: https://www.smore.com/g0vrk

57. Mindful Communication: What We Say Matters

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 11/13/2019 to 12/17/2019

When we can fully express ourselves and hear what's going on within others, we experience immense inner peace. This inner peace leads to outer peace, which leads to healthier relationships, stronger communities and ultimately makes the world a better place to live. - Jonathon Miller Communication is no easy task. Much suffering can arise from misunderstanding and lack of awareness. We speak in ways that rely on old habits, often depending on assumptions and judgments and looking through the lens of our own jumbled mind of thoughts. Our communication practices could benefit from mindful awareness! In this workshop, participants will explore the five questions to ask before engaging in conversation, ways to cultivate connection with individuals and groups, effective techniques for questioning and offering feedback, and how to do the inner work necessary for mindful interactions. Additionally, we will explore how to implement SEL practices as coaches and leaders when leading groups and working with individuals. Day 2 will include opportunity to practice skills learned on Day 1. Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder. -Rumi

65. Mindfulness for Beginners

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 2/4/2020

New
Mindfulness has become a bit of a buzzword in education. It has actually been around for thousands of years across many cultures! Through research over the last couple of decades, we have become increasingly aware of the powerful impact of mindfulness on our health and well-being. As we engage in the implementation of social emotional learning and mental health education, mindfulness is a supportive practice that can benefit the entire system. This learning experience will offer educators a foundational understanding of mindfulness and its role in stress management, emotional regulation, and interpersonal skills. It will also address how mindfulness can move us beyond just managing emotions and behaviors and toward cultivation of heartfulness and compassion. This is a hands-on, interactive workshop so come prepared to learn and play.

66. Educator Resilience Through Mindfulness & Community

Program: School Improvement

Dates: 3/3/2020 to 3/18/2020

We do not need the research to tell us that teaching is stressful and burnout is real, although that research does exist! What we may not realize is that the stress we carry, can become a new normal and we are not always aware enough to intervene on our own behalf! This energy we carry not only impacts us, it impacts everyone around us - students, colleagues, our families and our community. We will explore ways we can build our own inner resilience so that we may be our most authentic and effective self. Our focus will be on the utilization of mindfulness, self-care and collaborative, supportive communities to improve our inner and outer world. Additionally, we will discuss how we can carry this forward into our classrooms, schools and personal lives.½½
