Thank You Teachers!
We have a soft spot for teachers and want to do all we can to help you learn to practice and also teach self-compassion in your classroom. We recently presented at the Show Up For Teachers Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, along with other organizations and experts who specialize in social-emotional learning.
Below is our slides and presentation. It's about 40 minutes long, and we teach you the three basic steps to self-compassion and some simple tools to use when you're having a hard moment, day, season. By practicing self-compassion, you can create a kind, warm space for yourself, a reserve of kindness, to help you feel replenished, instead of depleted or drained. Let us show you how!
