TEACHER RESTORATIVE WELLNESS 

Teachers change the world by sharing their most precious inner resources to help others grow and develop.  The most beloved teachers are the ones who not only teach information, but inspire others to seek and use their own unique gifts.  There is an exchange between teacher and student that sparks curiosity, creativity, and connection to self and others.  When teachers are confronted with increasing demands in education, increasing psychological issues among young people and issues with the economy it can create a highly stressful environment.  How can a teacher continue to inspire greatness in others when they are not nourished themselves? 

 

Teacher Wellness workshops and groups help educators reduce stress, improve emotional awareness and increase responsiveness.  The overall goal is to provide a space for re-charging vitality and restoring wellness, while building skills that one can take into the classroom and create a more peaceful, dynamic and engaged environment.  Workshops and groups are open to any person working in the field of education, as every person in a school has a role in helping young people to grow and learn. 

Like the proverbial pebble dropped into a still pond, the shifts of consciousness we make in our personal lives

send out small but important waves that ripple through the whole world.
