Project inward

The path to student wellness starts with educator wellness.

It is time to make space for educator wellness.

Schools are becoming increasingly complex environments and the level of overwhelm among students and teachers alike are on the rise. With a great deal of focus and attention directed towards student wellness, the wellbeing of educators has been often overlooked. At Project Inward, we believe that wellness and personal development is a parallel process for both the adults and the students in an educational environment. Student wellness can not be addressed in a sustainable away until educators and administrators become greater keepers of their own health and wellbeing.

At Project Inward we offer educators time. Time to reflect. Time to connect to inner wisdom. Time to create deeper awareness so that they can more fully support their students on their own path to wellbeing.

The goal of this program is help educators and administrators to slow down so they can reflect on ways to better support their own wellbeing and begin to reimagine a school environment where both students and staff feel calm, supported and energized.

Project Inward can help educators to:

  • Feel more balanced

  • Live a healthier life

  • Adopt a personal meditation and other wellness practices

  • Support student wellness in the classroom

Tailor Project Inward to meet your school’s specific needs.

No two schools are the same. The same is true of teachers and administrators. That’s why Project Inward is a consultative service offered to individual schools. It can truly be whatever you need.

Let’s change the conversation in schools, together.

Levels of anxiety and overwhelm among students and educators alike are on the rise; change is needed as the current trajectory in schools is simply not sustainable. It is time to shift the conversation toward school wellness and create the space needed to imagine a healthier future, together. ProjectInward is dedicated to helping schools to incorporate mindfulness and wellness programs in a way that will work best for their students, faculty and broader community.

Some of the Project Inward options include:

  • Professional Development Workshops for Educators (for stress management, mindfulness and wellbeing)

  • School-Specific Wellness Audits

  • Meditation Program Development

  • One-on-one coaching

  • Coach-in-Residency Program

Are you ready to make time for educator wellness?



“I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Julie’s workshop. She was articulate and genuine. She set the right tone and facilitated our discussions perfectly.”

“It was a fantastic workshop! I learned about how important it is for me to maintain a healthy work-life balance. Sometimes I push myself too hard and I burn out, so it was great to be able to reflect on what I need to do so that I don't put myself in that situation again. It was also nice to have an open conversation with other educators -- to know that I was not alone in feeling what I was feeling.”

“The range of activities was appropriate and interesting. The level of dialogue and depth of discussion were motivating and thought provoking. I was surprised by how much I took away.”

The first step toward creating an improved future is developing the ability to envision it.
