Self-care is never selfish.

It’s looking after the only thing you have to give the world.

Retreats for Teachers

Our day-long  seasonal retreats invite teachers of all ages, subjects and settings to put aside the prepping, planning, and organizing;  to  pause, reflect, and nourish  their teaching heart. Together we’ll engage in quiet reflection, listening, and responding to one another while we explore the vocation of teaching.

For inspiration we’ll attend to short texts, poetry, music, and images. Simple, gentle guidelines will help us create an accepting and confidential space.

In-Person and Online.
