“Self-compassion (aka self-care), is an altruistic act because it puts us into the optimal mental and emotional mind-set to help others in a sustainable long-lasting way,” writes Dr. Kristin Neff.   As educators, the greatest gift you can give to your students is your mindful presence. 

 I am encouraged by so many educators developing a mindfulness practice.   May this site support your practice as you cultivate the skills that nurture and sustain you. 

 A deep bow of gratitude to Megan O’Reilly who inaugurated this website and to Ann Viveros who patiently provided the technical support making this resource a reality.   

Your feedback as I construct and improve this site is welcome.
