Rooted In Mindfulness

A Specialized Retreat for Educators and Care Providers

Mindful Self-Compassion Retreat

“Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing.”

– Jon Kabat Zinn



Reset-MindBody and Rooted In Mindfulness Guiding Teacher, Jesse Foy are proud to collectively offer a specialized retreat for educators and care providers. As the name suggests, a Mindfulness Self-Compassion (MSC) intensive is a deep dive into the practice of self-compassion.

During this day-long retreat, participants will be instructed in techniques of mindful self-compassion to be better able to recognize when they are under stress and face what is happening in their lives with a kinder and sustainable approach.

What to Expect

In this workshop, participants will learn ways to comfort themselves in difficult moments and to minimize “caregiver fatigue.”  This retreat is designed specifically for educators and care providers and works toward an understanding of ways to deal skillfully with the effects of:

  • Burn-out
  • Secondary Traumatic Stress
  • Compassion Stress
  • Compassion Fatigue
  • Vicarious Traumatization


Research has shown that self-compassion greatly enhances emotional well-being. It boosts happiness, reduces anxiety and depression. This retreat will equip participants with tools and techniques to develop their self-compassion as they head into a new school year.

Reset-MindBody are able to offer up to 2 graduate credits through Edgewood College for this course. Each credit is paid directly to Edgewood College at an additional rate of $175 per credit. Participants enroll for the credit option directly through Edgewood. An Edgewood representative comes to the first session of each course to answer questions regarding the credit option.

1 credit option: Mandatory attendance and participation for 7 hours

2 credit option: Mandatory attendance, participation for 8 hours, and a written reflection. In the 8th hour, participants will stay to write a reflection paper about how they believe practicing mindful self-compassion will enhance their personal and professional lives.
