Sustainable Compassion for Educators

July 11, 2016 @ 8:00 am - July 14, 2016 @ 5:00 pm UTC-4

This workshop is an opportunity for participants to learn the basic theory and practice of our Sustainable Compassionate Education approach.  As educators we are naturally inclined to extend care to others, yet rarely are we taught how to do so in a way that avoids burnout and empowers us to affect change. Our Summer Workshop for Educators will introduce participants to the theory and practice of Sustainable Compassion Training (SCT). Educators will be grounded in the current scientific research from the field of neuroscience, psychology, contemplative studies and systems theory.

During the workshop participants will learn:

  • Methods for avoiding burnout and empathy fatigue
  • Methods to cultivate attention, empathy, mindfulness and compassion
  • Methods to build and sustain caring, trusting communities
  • The scientific theory and practices of the three modes of care – Receiving Care, Self Care and Extending Care
  • Strategies and practices to help build resilience and increase relational trust

The program is designed both for individual educators as well as school teams wishing to integrate sustainable care and compassion into their personal and professional lives. This summer workshop also provides an opportunity for educators to connect with, get inspired by and learn from fellow educators.  All are welcome!
