The Mindful Therapy Tribe
A Group for Those Who want to Serve with Spirit
A group coaching program for heart-led therapists who want to make a difference in schools. In this group you will learn life changing mindfulness and movement tools to bring into your life and to thrive at work. We will ask life’s bigger questions and learn how to honor our intuition and listen to our hearts while using the latest science backed methods to help our students to grow and develop. You will learn how to craft a career in the schools that aligns with your values and helps you to live with joy. Work will become more easeful and fun while still meeting your daily demands. You will emerge from this group more confident and clear so you can own your unique gifts as your live out your purpose
When I began my journey with yoga and mindfulness I could see so much of my life with more clarity, I started to feel in my body when my old tired school practices no longer aligned with my spirit. Then came the neurodiversity movement. If you are paying attention then you have no choice but to shift your ways of being in the schools. How can you serve the disability community unless you actually listen to their calls for change?
Old paradigms of “fixing kids”, behavioral control, and working within your own silo simply do not work. The medical model with caseloads and therapy in segregated spaces does not help children thrive in their school occupations. Instead you can support children within their natural environments to live the life that they are meant to live while at the same time living your own best life!
I know that this can seem so far off and you are overwhelmed already. You have no time as it is and are bogged down with paperwork and so many responsibilities that you don’t have a minute to consider how you can be the changemaker that you know in your heart you were meant to be. What if I told you that you can do this by shifting your focus and not by increasing your time commitment. You can do all of this while feeling more purposeful and happier at work. It is possible with some guidance.
After 30 years of mentoring and teaching other therapists and teachers, I know how to help therapists to show up as their best selves at work. I know the obstacles and am confident in my methods of lovingly guiding therapists past their self imposed blocks that have them playing small. Therapists can be such a force for change in schools but they have to own their power and follow their hearts. Through self awareness activities, group support, individualized plans, and mindfulness practices you will emerge from this group a confident, clear therapist who is ready to live out their unique purpose in the schools.
In this 12 week program you will learn about how to incorporate mindfulness and movement into your own life. We cannot serve from an empty well so we will create practices that make us feel more whole and centered right from the start. We will meet every other week. Each session will have a unique theme and in between sessions there will be gentle mindfulness "homework."
Themes in Group Coaching Sessions
Time and Intention
How can we shift the conversation so that we use time more skillfully and reduce our stress load while still meeting the demands of work and home? We will work on cultivating a sense of ease so that we will feel full instead of frantic and busy.
We want to feel good about how we show up for children. The neuroscience over the last ten years is aligned with a mind body approach to emotional regulation. We will learn how to do this for ourselves as well as how to teach children. This includes more mindful ways to deal with challenging behaviors
Your Unique Fingerprint
Finding your mission and working from spirit. Through mindful awareness practices we will explore what it is that lights you up in your work. When we joyfully bring ourselves to our work we invite children to be their best selves too.
As school therapists we have been trained in creating short term goals for our students. These are important but even more impactful is helping children to create habits and rituals they can use throughout their lives. While we do this for the children we also can create these habits for ourselves. We can even create small rituals to make work a more inviting place to come to everyday.
Happiness at Work
We spend too much time at work for us to not be happy. We deserve joy and so do our students. Do we make our students' happiness part of our therapy plan ? Are we making relationships our top priority? How can we deal artfully with conflict with our colleagues and supervisors? These are the important questions we will be exploring.
The Neurodiversity Movement
We will be working on creating a path to be allies and advocates for our students. This starts with a look within to see our internalized ableism and blocks to compassion. Students with disabilities are constantly being sent messages that they are “less than” Our final time together will be to find ways to turn that tide around to help create a better world for our students
