FREE ON-LINE WEBINAR: Self-Compassion for Educators with Lisa Baylis, M.Ed, author of Self-Compassion for Educators
Lisa will share about her newly published book, “Self-Compassion for Educators” that puts educator well-being at the forefront of healthy school culture. It serves to awaken the well-being of educators by helping them understand the “why,” “how,” and “what” of sustainable wellness. Throughout her journey as an educator and certified mindful self-compassion teacher, she has learned some essential techniques that have helped her remain resilient—practices grounded in mindfulness and self-compassion—that she will share with you. Prioritizing educator well-being has to start now, and as care providers we need to get loud about it so that educators know they are essential. Educators need permission to care for themselves and this has to become society’s priority, so educators everywhere can be present and resilient enough to care for others (including our children).
Lisa Baylis has been sharing wellbeing strategies for the last 20 years. A natural born connector with an innate ability to make people feel valued and heard, she is a teacher, a counsellor, a facilitator, and a mother. Lisa is a published author of “Self-Compassion for Educators” as well as, the creator of the AWE Method — Awakening the Wellbeing for Educators — which merges self-care, mindfulness, and self-compassion.
Lisa has a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and a bachelor’s degree in Physical Education. She has taught internationally and locally. Much of her vast teaching experience was gained in classrooms across British Columbia — from Fort St. John to the Comox Valley. Currently, she is a high school counsellor in the Greater Victoria School District.
