LifeSchool Summer Retreat for Elementary School Teachers, Paraprofessionals and Staff

LifeSchool Summer Retreat will be held August 17-19, 2018 at Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, MA.

Come learn how to increase your wellbeing and resilience in preparation for the new school year. Learn how to create a peaceful classroom where your students can learn about self-awareness, self-expression and self-regulation, fulfilling the state mandate for social emotional learning in the curriculum.

The curriculum is both didactic and experiential and has been designed by CPC’s experts to help foster peaceful school environments, and address increasing stress experienced by teachers and their students in our school communities. The curriculum will include:

  • The scientific foundation for healthy living and effective learning

  • Core components of CPC’s Comprehensive Wellness Program: Yoga, meditation, mindful living, and nutrition

  • Tools for decreasing stress and enhancing resilience

  • Children’s curriculum with age appropriate lessons, easily integrated into a busy, school-day schedule

The 3-day retreat is the first phase of a yearlong LifeSchool program that is being offered to selected local elementary schools in the Berkshires. The program also has a limited number of seats reserved for teachers from non-participating schools. Please contact us about availability. CEU credits pending.
