Easy-to-Use Tools That Help You (and Your Students) Emotionally Self-Regulate

What if all children were equipped with the intellectual, social, and emotional tools they need to successfully navigate this journey we call life? And what if you could also feel centered, confident, and emotionally resourced as you hold space for your students to thrive?

Now is the time to make this vision a reality. In fact, it is imperative.

Welcome to The Spirit of SEL Symposium series!

This informative and experiential series has been created specifically for teachers, counselors, and school administrators – to help you emotionally self-regulate so you can more effectively and compassionately create classrooms that vibrate with the gentle, grounded, yet authoritative energy your students need to excel in these tumultuous and uncertain times.

The goal is to revive the heartbeat of education – through an increase of connection, kindness, and love that supports conscious educators like you who can then emanate resilience and peace in the classroom...

... strengthening your own internal resources while calming your students, and soothing their trauma so they can do their best work.

This series offers you practical tools, such as quick-and-easy mindfulness exercises you can turn to during the day to help you stay calm and centered, preventing the burnout that can occur when your reserves are depleted.

You’ll also discover how proven SEL techniques can not only improve EQ, but also quantifiable academic achievement outcomes for your students.

Here’s some of what our brilliant teachers will be sharing with you...

Bessel Van Der Kolk will suggest how to befriend what is going on inside yourself so you can create safe connections with others to live a more meaningful, satisfying life

Marianne Williamson will reveal how teachers can re-envision themselves as inspired conduits of love and miracle readiness for their students, classrooms, and schools

Meena Srinivasan will focus on the importance of integrating transformative and adult SEL, mindfulness, and belonging into an evolved exploration of the work

Houston Kraft will share practical tools and strategies to help improve classroom culture, campus compassion, and your daily personal routines

Ilana Nankin, PhD, will outline the critical connection between educator wellbeing and student learning and mental health, plus steps for integrating transformative mind-body wellness and social-emotional practices into your daily life and teaching

Ashanti Branch will model a safe space for engaging in an uncommonly open and honest dialogue designed to dismantle our masks – so we can close the gap between who we are on the inside and who we show up as out in the world

Dr. Christopher Willard will explore how to build foundations for human resilience and post-traumatic growth using the tools of positive psychology, anthropology, neuroscience, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness

Jamila Thomas will delve into the importance of leaders following regular self-care routines to reduce burnout and handle stress

Alejandra Ramos Gómez will discuss integrating bilingual artistic approaches, culturally responsive practices, identity development, and social-emotional learning in formal and informal K-12 education settings

   

One of the most challenging issues still facing teachers, counselors, and administrators who will soon be moving into the fourth year of COVID-impacted environments is the fact that many students are far behind in their scholastic skills.

It felt to many like the world fell apart over the past three years. And now it’s being rebuilt, which can be both exciting and daunting. 

In light of all this, how do you motivate and encourage students to push through their trauma, ennui, and distraction so they can concentrate?

None of the old rules apply, which makes it increasingly difficult to figure out what will work best in the classroom as you grapple with the “new normal.”

Which is why NOW is the perfect time to create space and safety for emotional, mental, and physical stability – for you and your students – in a world that seems to be more and more dangerously complex.

To help you do that, we’ve gathered together a group of world-class thought leaders, visionaries, and change-makers for an online series experience that will expertly guide teachers, counselors, and school administrators like you at this critical point on your rapidly evolving path toward educational excellence.

Nurturing kids to be intellectually and emotionally functional when you’re stressed, overwhelmed, and busy has always been a monumental challenge... but now is an ordeal of mythic proportions!

So, what exactly does a rebuilt educational world look like... and how can you best contribute your talents and nurturing concern to ensure a successful outcome?

We’ve designed a series that will inspire and energize you by offering practical tools and plentiful resources for navigating this new educational frontier...

... while including best practices, actionable advice, effective tips, and optimal behavior strategies from trustworthy sources and renowned experts curated from the best-of-the-best in the educational space.

This inspiring collection of speakers, tools, and uplifting teaching stories – a veritable educator’s master toolbox of resources – will point the way to what is possible, providing you with a treasure trove of mindfulness techniques you can use in your classroom starting today!

The Spirit of SEL Symposium series will provide you and your students with the tools you need to improve the emotional regulation of your classroom, leading to calmer nervous systems, wellbeing, and peace of mind for all.

Here’s what participants had to say about previous summits:

Thank you! I feel I am growing my community in this!!! Feel very optimistic and empowered! Much love and blessings.

Thanks so much for putting this beautiful summit together. I love the emphasis on the connection to nature and the magic of life.

Overall, I loved this offering. It was such a positive and love-filled event.
