Sustaining Educators with Courage, Presence and Integrity
In this exhausting year of  unprecedented challenges posed by the pandemic, as well as a national reckoning on racial justice, it is crucial that educators work together to cultivate trusting and culturally responsive school communities. In order to be fully present for this work, educators need time to slow down, reflect with peers, and nurture their personal resilience. Drawing on practices from Soul of Leadership: Courage, Presence and Integrity, a renewal program for school leaders, this session will provide a space to reflect on your life and work through contemplative and reflective practices drawn from the Center of Courage and Renewal and the fields of mindfulness, social-emotional learning, neuroscience, and the arts. We will explore the importance of establishing touchstones, being fully present, practicing mindful listening, and exercising self-care and compassion in order to build adult communities in schools.
