RISE for Educators

This program is for those in the educational field—teachers, counselors, administrators, principals, and specialists—who want to experience first-hand the practical and powerful tools of RISE, an evidence-based program for mindful stress resilience.

The many demands of the educational system today cause stress. How you work within this environment either in exhaustion from trying to do it all, or elevation as you engage inner resources to cultivate calm, choose focus for clarity, and nurture positive support from connections. 

In this program, participants learn how to

  • Navigate stressors successfully to reduce burnout and exhaustion
  • Elevate resilience for a healthier, happier, and more engaged school
  • Use several body-centered tools to increase mindfulness and decrease stress.

“This program has saved me from leaving the teaching profession. We were lost, overwhelmed, unappreciated, hopeless, and had feelings of guilt. This program allowed us to band together and become stronger, giving us a sense of hope for the future.” —Middle school teacher
