Renewing the Heart of Teaching | May 6

Wed, May 6, 2009

Target Audience: All
Location: Chicago, IL
Presented by: Bliss Browne, President of Imagine Chicago
Sponsored by: Imagine Chicago

How do you renew the heart of the teacher and build community between teachers? This workshop is a review of curriculum materials and frameworks developed by Imagine Chicago for a 2 year series of Teacher Renewal retreats run at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

The focus of the program was on deepening the teacher's integrity, peacefulness, and capacity for wonder, mystery, and community. Teachers learned to lead more reflective and connected lives and to sustain life-giving attitudes toward other people. Using poetry, wisdom, literature, arts, media and reflection, retreat content was organized around seasonal themes- helping teachers see that the teaching vocation offers opportunities for entering deeply into the cycle of renewal.

Participants in this workshop will receive extensive sample materials that can be adapted for use in your own settings and learn the design principles and outcomes of the process.

Cost of $350 per workshop includes training materials.
Early bird discount of $50 for registrations prior to February 28.
Space limited to 15 participants. Register early!
