Culture of Care, 4-Day Series July

Delaware Department of Education, in collaboration with Pure Edge, Inc., will host a four-part Culture of Care institute for educators and leaders. The Culture of Care training prepares educators to deliver breathing, mindful movement, and relaxation exercises in the classroom and to train colleagues to do the same. Participants in the training will learn and be able to communicate how this approach promotes social-emotional learning (SEL) in the classroom. In this virtual setting, each session includes a self-care practice for participants and time for Q&A and practical implementation strategies. The sessions are highly interactive and participants will practice teaching the exercises with colleagues. Participants will become familiar with the Pure Edge online resource library to support establishing a Culture of Care at their school site.

Building a Mindful Meditation Practice, 4-Day Series

Establishing a daily meditation practice does not have to be a struggle. We will start a little at a time in order to help build a sustainable practice. The most important thing to do is to just show up and start. Taking this attitude can help motivate you and provide the inspiration needed to carry your seated meditation practice forward. Practice can be done seated in a chair or on a cushion or on a pile of folded blankets, on the floor.
