Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education 

Teaching is one of the most rewarding professions, but it can also be one of the most stressful. CARE for Teachers (CARE) is a unique program designed to help teachers reduce stress and enliven their teaching by promoting awareness, presence, compassion, reflection, and inspiration – the inner resources they need to help students flourish, socially, emotionally, and academically. CARE is a program of CREATE ( Creating Resilience for Educators, Administrators and Teachers). 

The Garrison Institute offers this innovative training for teachers introducing an evidence-based set of practical skills. These skills will help you reduce stress, improve your mental concentration and emotional awareness, and facilitate responsiveness.

You will be able to apply these in the classroom so you can consistently be the caring, compassionate teacher you are.

These skills include relaxation, movement, deep listening, emotion-awareness training, and much more.

CARE for Teachers has been developed by a team of researchers, educators, psychologists, and experts in contemplative practice.

There are a limited number of partial scholarships available for this retreat. To apply for a scholarship, please click here.
