(Community Groups/Educational Agencies)
We have worked with various community groups such as 'Childminding Ireland,’ 'Portobello College' (Montessori Training) and GAA clubs in giving workshops/talks in the area of well-being. We also offer workshops for educational agencies. We have worked with the ATECI, IPPN, NIPT and The Teaching Council of Ireland in offering support through workshops/talks to those working in education.
The life of the teacher involves multi-tasking, addressing social issues, liaising with parents and interacting with colleagues. Often, the needs of the students become more of a priority than the teacher's own need to engage in self-care. This course looks at how this can be changed to improve the life of the teacher which will obviously in turn, affect the daily interactions that they have with their students.

This course is offered as a Dept. of Education approved summer course and an evening course. This course encompasses all of the main principles of mindfulness and meditation, but also provides a very important space for the teacher to address his/her thoughts and feelings around reducing stress and improving well-being.
The course has two main purposes: firstly, to address the needs of the individual teacher in relation to stress so that he/she can implement these new skills into their own life and secondly, to provide the teacher with practical ideas and lessons that they can implement directly into their classroom/resource room etc under the SPHE curriculum. This will be offered as a workshop/s for Croke Park hours in the academic year 2016/17 (visiting the school).
The course is supported by a comprehensive online website which uses amazing videos and audio meditations as well as lots of printable resources and real life examples for your classroom.
The parent will explore the practice of self-care in order to improve life for themselves and for those around them whilst teaching them how to engage with these practices in a manner that they feel they can practically and confidently bring them into their family life. They will learn how to share these practices with their children.
