    Abstract  

    The human touch is critical to our wellbeing. In times of social distancing, online virtual meetings may seem to provide an alternative to face-to-face communication, but there are many challenges. Participants of self-care for educators with mindfulness awareness practice will develop and strengthen a growth mindset to help face life and work challenges with a caring attitude to the people they love and care for and their students. Participants will learn about the brain, self-care, and how to develop a mindfulness awareness practice.
