Expanding on the benefits of Calmer Choice curriculum well beyond the classroom, a Calmer Choice Mindfulness Coach is a comprehensive approach to seeding resilience, compassion, and wellbeing into a local school district’s educational culture.
The past few months have been productive and fruitful for the Calmer Choice staff and board as we engage in the kinds of conversations that generate true alignment around who we are as an organization and clarity around the communities we serve.
In our mission to support the mental health and wellbeing of Cape Cod children and the adults who support them, we are offering a 4-week course for parents of teens and tweens in partnership with Nové Yoga in West Dennis.
Calmer Choice seeks a Summer Intern to assist with Marketing, Communications and Development efforts. Candidates must be local or be willing to spend early June through late August on Cape Cod, MA.
Outside our windows these past few weeks we see grey skies, rain - and lots of snow! It feels comforting to settle into a cozy, winter hibernation-slowing down and enjoying of simple, ceremonial activities. Though the temperature outside be at times downright frigid – the staff of Calmer Choice feel the pull of our planet’s cycles and these days it’s feeling a bit like spring in the office (tulip bouquets on our desks surely contribute).
On my desk is a diagram of the “regenerative social design canvas” – it’s a framework we are using this winter and spring as we create our next three-year strategic plan for Calmer Choice.
In recognition of all that we are facing and holding as individuals and communities, we are offering our next 8-week course (beginning Tues. January 11th) through a choose-your-own-tuition model.
Our 2020-2021 Annual Report includes a farewell letter from Fiona Jensen, a message from incoming CEO Emily Smalley, and details our accomplishments over the year as our organization enters our second decade of service.
It’s been an incredible period of growth and change for Calmer Choice. We are finding our sea legs in the wake of our dear founder Fiona’s retirement, melding skillsets with a new Leadership Team, celebrating a successful Fall event season, and making plans for the future.
