Creative Practices to Sustain the Soul

“Do you feel worn out and emotionally spent? Is your life on fast-forward and you long to slow down and enjoy more experiences that feed your soul? In Creative Practices to Sustain the Soul, we’ll focus on practical strategies for creative practices that will help you and your students intentionally connect with your humanity. With so much of our time spent online, we require a renewed awareness about our inner lives by making space for our emotions. We’ll cover journaling, meditation, nature, minimalism, juggling, art, exercise, Netflix and more (while practicing a few of these). Come prioritize your soul so you can model this calm to your students.”
