The Academy’s Institute Teaching offers educators of all kinds and from all fields an opportunity to renew their aspirations and innate sense of curiosity, wonder and desire to learn. Through shared experience, reflective practice, time in nature and artistic expression, participants are able to open up to transformative and positive change within themselves, their organizations and their communities at large. Fundamental to the Academy’s learning practice is the intentional integration of the more challenging and uncomfortable aspects of our experience as educators with the more noble and heroic. In effect, this creates a living bridge and wholeness that, over time and with practice, can become a deep, intrinsic pattern and support when back in the classroom or professional setting.
The Sky Center will offer its lens on resiliency in the field of education. Drawing upon research supporting mindful awareness practices as a core pathway to professional well-being, facilitators will lead participants in experiential exercises intended to offer nourishment. Didactic information will also be offered providing insight about a practical and sustainable way forward in school communities rife with toxic stress.
