FAILURES ARE NOT FINAL

Self-compassion and mindfulness practice make this very clear. Mindfulness can help leaders realize that after burnout, or problems, there can be an encore, comeback, second chance, or redemption.

Mindfulness Pt. II and Self-Compassion

To register, contact Alaina Wood at alainawood@oakland.edu

  1. This workshop will also build on the teaching practices of the Mindfulness Pt I workshop, focusing on lessons that teach social-emotional learning and mindfulness practices. Learn how to teach students to focus, self-soothe, and find a center to thrive in schools. Continue to build strategies for teaching mindfulness in the classroom. We will add teaching strategies to use in the classroom.

    This is a workshop that is designed for all school faculty interested in learning about self- compassion and how to help students learn how to identify the often harsh, inner-voice of criticism and replace it with kindness and support. Mindfulness self-compassion helps to build empathy, understanding, and resilience. This workshop will teach the fundamentals of mindful self-compassion and offer training in the practices to cultivate compassion for self and others.
