Educators will learn how to cultivate compassionate classrooms through personally embodying self-compassion, mindfulness, and compassion in the classroom.
Stanford-trained compassion teacher, Sara Schairer, leads experiential and inspiring workshops to help educators learn and feel the basics of compassion. Using guided visualizations and partner exercises, Sara creates an environment where thought-provoking discussions challenge participants to notice their judgements toward themselves and others. Through this awareness, self-compassion and compassion for others emerge.
Compassion can help prevent burnout and increase overall well-being of educators. Another benefit of this course is that students are more inclined to "compassion it" in the classroom if they see it modeled by their teachers and administrators.
