Pushing Past the Pages

Pushing Past the Pages

New groups starting May 2020!

Have you ever wondered how it might feel to take time to nourish yourself to feel more ready in your work? In parenting? Or wanted to further your understanding of resilience, connection, and well-being?

Ever want to go deeper than the brief overview of important topics offered at conferences? Or do you want to join others in conversation around timely and important issues and ideas? Do you simply think it would be refreshing to think through these issues in community, with others invested in parenting and education, for example, who are also thinkers and doers? Then this is the group for you!

Pushing Past the Pages is a group coaching experience with a book club feel! Together, we’ll push ‘past the pages’ of engaging and informative books and create intentional conversations to support ongoing growth and development. There will be weekly discussions (online or in-person depending on your location) over a period of time that offer opportunities to reflect on and learn about different topics, ideas and approaches.

Pushing Past the Pages can also help serve as affordable professional development for educators and others and provide access to effective practices and additional resources to support well-being, connection, and resilience.

I recognize that online learning may be new to some of you. No worries…there are no prerequisites for participation. All are welcome and I’m so glad that you’re here! It is my genuine hope and intent that Pushing Past the Pages intrigues many individuals working within different roles, provides access to resources otherwise not available, and encourages intentional and meaningful learning!

Together…

we’ll create an intentional space for reflection and discussion to explore specific topics and ideas highlighted within a particular book. We’ll share our own thinking, stories and ideas, and make stronger connections and commitments to information and strategies that impact our interactions and experiences with others.
