This is a multi-modal course for helping parents and teachers tap into more sustainable care and compassion in community with each other. We will introduce you to a comprehensive framework that integrates current research in neuroscience, social-emotional learning, mindfulness, and developmental and social psychology. This approach aims to support educators and parents in deepening their self care along with their capacity for care and connection with others in order that they might: avoid burnout and overwhelm, enhance well being, and create community.
Courses are available anytime, a new lesson will be released each week. Each lesson consists of an 8-10 minute video, a practice for yourself and a practice share with your children or students as well as discussion prompts and further readings.
