  1. Navigating Burnout Through Inner Work with Andrew Lang Lori Adams-Brown 48:41

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and burnt out from the demands of the education system, then you are not alone! Many educators find themselves struggling to navigate the pressures of teaching and managing their own well-being in the midst of it all. The constant juggling act of meeting expectations, dealing with student needs, and managing personal stress can leave you feeling exhausted and depleted. If you’re looking for a way to break free from this cycle and find a sense of balance and purpose, then you are in the right place!

In this episode, you will be able to:

  • Cultivate inner peace and Resilience through transformative inner work practices.
  • Discover the profound impact of somatic exercises on mental well-being and emotional balance.
  • Enhance your Resilience and well-being through personal development strategies tailored for educators.
  • Unleash the power of creativity for emotional healing and self-discovery.
  • Equip yourself with effective strategies to navigate and prevent educator burnout.
