Self Care Moments for Principals - June 28, 2017 http://www.cesa3.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=17655&memberid=79 Self Care Moments Mindful Living Skills for Social, Emotional, and Physical Health with Kate Forest, RYT

Join Kate Forest on Monday January 23rd for an informational webinar and learn how you can integrate short, simple Self Care Moments and Mindful Living Skills into your busy days to help you reduce stress and anxiety, build focus, support physical health, and practice greater kindness to yourself and others on a daily basis. Receive a Self Care Skill during this webinar to immediately implement into your life to begin, or continue your practice of mindfulness. Learn about the five month Self Care Development program beginning in February that includes two in-person day-long Self Care Support immersions, and four virtual Self Care Support Gatherings. In this program you will learn to personally practice Self Care and Mindful Living Skills ranging from ten seconds to ten minutes. These skills can be applied at work, at home, at play, and in all areas of life to strengthen social, emotional, cognitive and physical health. Connect to the Moment is the foundational teaching of The Body, Mind, Breath Connection ™ and each activity, principle, and skill in this program begins by connecting to the moment. As we practice this connection, we build healthy habits of body and mind that help us to create positive changes in our health, our relationships, and our lives. The Body, Mind, Breath Connection™ is the action of being mindful by noticing what is happening inside of us and around us. It is the practice of self-awareness and self care through mindful movement, supportive thinking, and intentional breathing that can help us to release stress, support self-regulation, build focus, and act with greater kindness toward ourselves and others. Through this mindful connection we give more attention to what we are doing and how we are doing it so that we can do it more effectively and calmly while bringing moments of self care into our busy days. The body, mind, breath, and emotions are deeply connected and how we move, think, and breathe can affect how we feel and react throughout the course of our day. Many people feel habitually stressed, rushed, anxious, tired, and overwhelmed from the moment the alarm goes off in the morning until it’s time to go to sleep at night. Hurrying from one experience to the next without a pause, the body tight with physical tension, the thoughts racing ahead and disconnected from the body, and the breath shallow and constricted can trigger the body to release the stress hormones adrenaline, norepinephrine, and cortisol. This can be very helpful at times to heighten our reactions in dangerous situations and help protect us from harm. But habitually living in this state can be physically, emotionally, and mentally depleting and can contribute to anxiety, depression, angry outbursts, scattered thinking, body aches, and chronic illness to name a few. This contagious energy can spread to those around us and can contribute to the tense atmosphere that can sometimes be a part of school climate. It can also negatively impact our social, emotional, physical, and academic health as it is difficult to fully see, hear, feel, and experience what is directly in front of us when the body and mind are so stressed, tired, overstimulated, and disconnected. Stress and disconnection affect the outcome of learning, teaching, and leading. It is essential that we do the work needed to learn healthy and natural ways to release stress so that we can live, learn, teach, and lead more mindfully and joyfully, and interact with each other from a place of calm, clear, connection. Self Care Moments and Mindful Living Practices include: Self Care Movement Breaks that integrate mindful movement and intentional breathing with social emotional learning Self Care Breathing Breaks to help focus, calm, and awaken the mind, relax and renew the body, and release social, emotional, and physical stress Reflective activities to increase self-awareness Creative practices including reflective writing Moments of intentional rest and quiet connection Mindful communication Whole-group and small-group collaboration World care and community-building activities Simple ways to bring The Principles and Skills of Self Care and Mindful Living into the workplace and all areas of life When we integrate moments of self care into our busy days we have more calmness, focus, physical health, emotional balance, and compassion to share with others. This positive energy can spread to those around us and creates greater kindness, connection, empathy, and peace in our relationships, our communities, and our world. Self Care and Mindful Living Skills can help you to: Release social, emotional, and physical stress Transition with greater awareness from one experience to the next Increase focus, self-awareness, and calmness to support work-place performance Support behavior management and self-regulation Build supportive thinking and problem-solving skills React with greater clarity and kindness in stressful situations Ease anxiety and depression and soothe other difficult emotions Make healthy choices Communicate more calmly and clearly Enhance creativity and imagination Promote feelings of relaxation, connection, and inner peace Increase physical strength, balance, flexibility, and coordination Improve postural alignment and create space for deeper, more effective breathing Reduce the level of stress hormones in the body Ease physical tension and body aches Improve sleep and rest patterns Strengthen the immune system and enhance health Support mindful eating and aid digestion Increase energy and resilience Build social, emotional, and physical health Promote kinder relations within schools, families, communities, and our world Kate Forest, RYT has been teaching short, simple Self Care Skills and Mindful Living Practices to children, teens, and adults since 1999. Kate is a Mindful Living and Mindful Learning Consultant, the Creator of Self Care Yoga®, and an Advanced Level Registered Yoga Teacher. Kate’s mission is to share short, simple Self Care Breaks and Mindfulness Practices that empower adults, adolescents, and children to release stress, build focus, and strengthen their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical health. She has been sharing her mindful approach to living and learning with universities, schools, families, individuals, and organizations for over eighteen years, and works closely with teachers, students, counselors, nurses, parents, support staff, and administrators to bring these self care skills and mindfulness practices to their school communities. Kate has a passion for creating and sharing skills that she practices personally, and she has extensive training in the practice of Yoga and Mindfulness, a certificate in Mindfulness in Education, and has completed The Fundamentals of Co-Active Coaching. Her programs are based on her Five Principles and Eleven Skills of Self Care and Mindful Living, and The Body, Mind, Breath Connection™. By practicing Kate’s Principles and Skills of Self Care & Mindful Living, you can live, learn, teach and lead more mindfully, from a place of calm, clear connection and care. Kate believes that Self Care is World Care and World Care is Self Care™, and that when you create space in your busy life to care for yourself – even a few moments at a time – you have more energy, patience, focus, emotional balance, and compassion to share with others, which will have positive effects on your health, your relationships, your community, and our world.

August 14 & 15, 2017 - CESA 3 in Fennimore

Cost:  $200.00 for 2-day Training (Includes "The Restorative Practices Handbook" & "Restorative CIRCLES in Schools"

Implementing restorative practices is about supporting the hearts and minds of your students, teachers, staff, and parents so they are focused on strengthening and repairing relationships to establish and maintain healthy and productive learning communities. The focus isn’t just on discipline and responding to behavior concerns. The focus must also be on building connections as a way to prevent problems from occurring in the first place.

This is not “a program” to implement in your school. It is bigger than this…it’s about shifting your entire school culture. The restorative school sees restorative practices as “just a part of how we do things around here”, instead of an occasional tool we use when a child is in trouble.

The goals of Restorative Practices apply not only to those involved in or affected by misbehavior, but to the larger educational community as well.

Key Goals of Restorative Practice:

  • To understand the harm and develop empathy for both the harmed and the harmer
  • To listen and respond to the needs of the person harmed and the person who harmed
  • To encourage accountability and responsibility through personal reflection within a collaborative planning process
  • To reintegrate the harmer (and, if necessary, the harmed) into the community as valuable, contributing members
  • To create caring climates to support healthy communities
  • To change the system and why it contributes to the harm

Day 1: Introduction to Restorative Practices

Learn practical strategies to build strong, healthy relationships with students, families and colleagues. Interactive experiences bring you to a full understanding of the fundamental unifying premise of restorative practices—that people are happier, more cooperative and productive and more likely to make positive changes in their lives when those in positions of authority do things with them rather than to them or for them.

Day 2: Using Circles Effectively

Circles facilitate conversation and encourage full participation to help promote truly meaningful communication. Through video, practice and discussion, participants identify reliable methods for using circles to build community, establish norms and address behavior and relationships. Useful in any setting from education to organizational management.
