Teachers are experts at planning and preparation.  During these challenging times of ongoing uncertainty and rapid changes, the importance of resilience, adaptability, and dealing with ambiguous loss is more important than ever. This rejuvenating series will focus on identifying strengths, gathering supports, encouraging self-care and providing resources that can uplift and relieve the daily challenges inherent to this upcoming (school) year.

This ten-week rejuvenation program (September 15-November 17, 2020) is designed to offer a respite for teachers. Although specifically geared for teachers, the program offers strategies applicable to individuals interested in rejuvenating their own journey during these unprecedented times and all are welcome.

While the program will not address specific restrictions and policy changes, it will provide ways to cultivate a personal environment conducive to dis-empowering negative and upsetting circumstances.


Cornerstones of the program…

  • Resilience Strategies
  • Impact of Ambiguous Loss
  • Power of Identifying Strengths
  • Importance of Adaptability
  • Guest Speakers on Mental, Emotional, & Physical Well Being

What the program is and is not…

  • The program will focus on positive psychology versus stressful and frustrating daily challenges.
  • The program will provide ways to cultivate an environment (internally and externally) conducive to growth versus becoming overwhelmed by resistance to dis-empowering (negative) circumstances.
  • The design of the program is to NOT allow daily frustrations, constant changes, restrictions, anxieties, and the unpredictability of future events to overwhelm and consume us.

Cost – $30.00 for the 10-week series*

* (*The $30 program fee is offered to make it attainable for all to attend. It is coupled with an opportunity to offer a donation to sustain the ongoing costs associated with running a comprehensive outreach program.)
