(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.

Listen to a Sample Meditation from the course...
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.

Renew your ‘well’ of energy this summer!
The overall aim of this course is to create a comfortable, relaxing space for the teacher/school leader to reflect, relax, rejuvenate and renew their ‘well’ of energy after the school year has ended.
The following course aims detail what the course entails:
Firstly, to address the needs of the individual teacher in relation to stress and to explore these needs actively throughout the course through understanding the physiology of the stress response along with self-care and mindfulness practices.
This course will provide a relaxing space where the teacher can reflect upon current practices in the area of well-being and learn new practices too which can then be implemented into their daily life to change their responses to stress and improve his/her own well-being in simple, practical ways.
The course includes guided meditations that can be enjoyed from the comfort of their own home. (The emphasis lies on the teacher experiencing self-care and mindfulness practices for his/herself and therefore progressing naturally into the second aim).
Secondly, to provide the teacher with practical strategies and lessons that can be confidently implemented directly into their classroom/school community under the SPHE curriculum, along with bringing simple, enjoyable well-being resources and ideas into their daily classroom practice, that won’t just benefit the well-being of the pupils and classroom culture but will also directly benefit teacher well-being too.
