Art of Resilience and Renewal

A RETREAT SERIES FOR SEASONED EDUCATORS

R & R Redefined: From Rest and Relaxation to Resilience and Renewal

Wondering how to make it through another year of life and school during the time of COVID? Wondering how you might generate possibilities for what’s next? No need to wonder alone! 

It's going to be a powerful day of connection, rejuvenation, and joy, led by two long-time educational leaders with a heart for supporting teachers. 

Although designed especially for Independent school teaching professionals, we'll gladly welcome any educators  who’s been in the trenches for a number of years and feel called to the experience.

Join us in creating a space animated by our individual and shared experiences, by what we know from research and can learn from reflection, and by opportunities for conversation, writing, play, and other creative engagement deliberately framed to remind us of what’s possible, what we’re each and all in fact capable of, and how we might access—and even share—it again!

Our Location
