This session will be an experiential workshop to support educators and leaders to integrate moments of mindfulness and compassion in daily life and work. Research has shown that mindful self-compassion builds resilience and counteracts burnout, which we know is so prevalent among educators. The capacity to treat ourselves with care is foundational to our ability to sustain hard work, stay grounded, and respond to difficulty with skill. Self-compassion is also a form of strength and fierceness that can serve as a resource in working to make schooling more just and caring for all.

The workshop will include a brief introduction to mindfulness and self-compassion as concepts. The majority of the session will include guided meditations, exercises to evoke compassion and self-compassion, and small group discussions to support you to bring these practices into daily life.
