Your Daily Break

A dash of Mindfulness-based SEL for each day of the week!

Heading Into Summer!

You have worked so super hard these past few months. Get ready to replenish and nurture yourself - mind-body-soul.


It is also a great time to engage in deep reflection. As Parker Palmer calls it, "the work before the work."


We hope to provide opportunities for self-care and inner reflection throughout the summer in this bi-weekly newsletter.


Be well & breathe,
