Mindful Caring is a resource for you and your team if you educate or care for children. This program is designed to promote personal and professional wellbeing, enabling educators to be more mindful of themselves, their colleagues and the children they work with. Educators and teams will engage in practical experiences throughout the program, to enhance mindfulness in their everyday work lives and increase workplace harmony and connectedness.
Mindful Caring is about giving you coping tools and strategies to deal with the day-to-day stress factors in your workplace, so that you enjoy your life more and feel healthier, happier and more balanced. Participants in Mindful Caring found they were better able to recognise and deal with stress, reduce conflict, be more mindful when having difficult conversations, and feel more connected to their team, the families and especially to children. A program that not only benefits you, but everyone you interact with.
There is a variety of program packages available, and we would love to discuss what unique requirements you and your organisation has. This program is delivered through eight video and audio sessions, accompanied by a manual/workbook, plus optional facilitator workshops.
WHAT THIS PROGRAM HAS TO OFFER
Mindfulness is a root construct for change, meaning that there are many flow on effects from engaging with mindfulness. Often people say to me that home life has become calmer, kinder and better. Other times they say that they feel less frustrated and have lost their temper less, others again notice that they have lost weight or feel more sensitive to things, or more grateful.
Mindful Caring integrates the latest research in neuroscience, with the ancient practice of mindfulness, as well as my many years of experience working with clients and groups. The program is experiential. It is a journey of discovery about yourself, your habits, and the world around you.
