Promising Practices, Well at Work

WEBINAR: Struggling in September? Let’s turn to self-compassion as a way to meet the ongoing challenges

This webinar is primarily for school-based educators

As an educator, do you feel like you’re on a boat out at sea with no rudder this September?  Cultivating mindfulness and self-compassion practices can provide the anchor you need in these unprecedented times.

Bill O’Brien said: “The success of an intervention depends on the interior condition of the intervener.” In other words: the success of our actions as educators during September does not depend on “What we do” or “How we do it,” but on the inner Place from which we operate.  Mindfulness and self-compassion enables us to show up intentionally aware and present so we can meet each colleague and student with care.  But it starts with us as individuals first.

In this-one hour webinar, originally broadcasted on September 18th, 2020, participants learned the three components of self-compassion, the physiology around self-compassion and self-criticism and practices on how to meet ongoing struggles in the moment.
