Self-Care Academy

Educators are natural givers who spend endless hours offering support to their students, colleagues, communities, and families, often leaving themselves neglected. Teachers are impacted by some of the highest levels of stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue and yet rarely take the time that is necessary for self-care. The importance of educators taking care of themselves is even reflected as one of the main components in trauma-informed care (compassion resilience). When teachers take time to replenish their spirit and make their own personal health and wellness a priority, they are able to serve others fully and be the best version of themselves for others.

“I so appreciated taking time out of my week to reflect with like minded people about the craziness of this time. The topics, relaxation time, and reality check was SO worth it! Thank you Pam & Kalise for all your time & effort in making this possible!”

Virtual Self-Care Academy

Now that achieving work/life balance is harder than ever, we invite you to join us for a Virtual Self-Care Academy that will focus specifically on taking care of ourselves during these tough times of the COVID-19 pandemic.

During our time together, you will be guided by Pam and Kalise as we dive deeper into practices to help you feel balanced at a time we’re all running on empty. There will be opportunities to ground together, journal, reflect, and to learn and experience techniques to help you feel prepared to take care of your students, while also taking care of yourself, your relationships, and your families.

To learn more or to sign up for an upcoming VSCA, contact us.

Upcoming Virtual Self-Care Academies
We are currently in a session of VSCAs through July 2020.  Please contact us if you’d like to join. 

More opportunities will be coming soon…

“Living and teaching during this pandemic has been incredibly difficult for each of us. Pam and Kalise make it bearable with dedicated time each week devoted to our well-being as we help our students. They have created a safe space for our self-care.”

Steeping Wellness Self-Care Academy (In-person)
The Steeping Wellness Self-Care Academy is an experience for educators who are needing support on how to infuse wellness and self-care opportunities into their workdays and lives. We like to think of the Academy as a workshop with a built-in retreat. In addition to experiencing several options for self-care, learning practical tips, and creating plans to achieve better well-being, all participants receive Steeping Wellness swag and a year’s worth of monthly wellness newsletters to help keep them on track.

Upcoming Self-Care Academies
There are no public Self-Care Academies currently scheduled.

To host your own Self-Care Academy or Virtual Self-Care Academy, contact us.

“I am incredibly thankful for the two of you (Pam and Kalise), for guiding me on this journey.  I am such a better person now than I was, because I pause.  It’s such a critical aspect of living a happy, healthy life.  Thank you.”
