Please join us for Thrive Week taking place from Oct. 31 to Nov. 4!

Thrive is a week-long events series aimed at building positive mental health and wellness through discussion, learning, skill development, and resource sharing. This year’s events focus on the key concepts of happiness and joy.

Featured events to look forward to, include:

  • Lunch THEN Learn Series: Mindful Self-Compassion
    • Networking: 12pm-1pm | Seminar: 1pm-2pm | Date: Nov 4
    • Description: Our brains are wired for survival, which creates a natural tendency to focus on and be motivated by negative thought patterns like criticism, pain, and danger. Self-compassion training helps educators understand and transform these habitual responses and develop the ability to motivate with compassion rather than self-criticism. The science shows – and through our work we, can see – that self-compassion has a significant positive impact on educator well-being, resilience, and stress management. Practicing self-compassion involves taking action and making positive changes in our lives. Through this process, we see people reconnecting with their deep motivation and excitement for helping others.
