Most teachers enter the field of education to make a difference in children's lives. But many end up, as author Lisa Lucas puts it, "tired, wired, and running in circles." This leads to many new teachers abandoning the profession or to burnout among veteran teachers. Drawing upon her own experiences, Lisa has written a book to help you more successfully manage the frustration of feeling overwhelmed. Written in an informal, conversational tone, Practicing Presence is filled with ideas, exercises, checklists, personal anecdotes, and practices you can use to reframe and establish a mindset that will enhance your focus and engagement in the classroom. When teachers care for themselves deeply and deliberately, they are better able to care for the people that matter most in their lives--their students, friends, and families. Practicing Presence focuses not on doing, but rather on being present in the life of the classroom. Each chapter includes self-care strategies to explore how to self-regulate, nurture self-acceptance, and promote compassion. This book will give readers the feeling of having a personal coach who provides suggestions and routines so that they not only can deal with being overwhelmed, but rise above it.

Genuine, life-giving spirituality calls us to be our best selves and to bring out the best in others, each and every day. It calls us to care—for God, others, and ourselves. In Practicing Presence, popular spiritual writer Kerry Walters shows us how to integrate care into our daily lives on the road to happiness and holiness. As Walters reveals, we do not need to be professional caregivers to nurture a creative, intimate, and meaningful openness to our deepest selves, to others, and to God. We simply need to be “present” to who God is and who we are as images of God.

This book draws on the combined experience of a located minister, pastoral scholar and former hospital chaplain. First, it introduces the basic elements of pastoral care in a clear and concise way….It then discusses the basic tenants of crisis theory and provide guidelines for performing and effective intervention and referral. The first unit concludes by focusing on some special issues that occur in pastoral care (e.g., grief and burnout). Second, it introduces several tools and ideas that can be used practically in a number of pastoral care and crisis situations….These are not offered as a “checklist” agenda for a minister to follow when you visit someone in the hospital or are called upon to intervene in a crisis. Yet they are offered as a way of easing our internal fears about sitting with someone in the midst of their pain and suffering.

Practicing Presence with Inner Kindness is a beginning step in realizing we are a part of everything and everything is a part of us. As humans, our biggest challenges are deep observation, deep inspiration and deep experience. Our normal focus is typically limited to the technology screens we constantly carry with us and answer to. Most of us are in search of a new way - fixated on a search for more meaning in our lives. We are looking for ways to actively participate in the moments of our days and to seek ways to feel good about ourselves. When we start with inner kindness towards ourselves, we experience more personal happiness and thus we will find ourselves being more productive, more creative, more resilient and more energized.

A powerfully uplifting journal experience for all of you - your inner soul and all of your senses. Capture notes of your daily experiences using your sight, smell, touch, hearing and taste senses. Spend a little time adding color to your pages to line drawings or spending a few lingering moments looking into a beautiful photo image shared within the pages of the journal. When you practice, you can feel a difference in how you show up in a regular authentic way. When you are present, you have a different mindset and have a different experience each moment. When you track your experiences, you will learn a lot about how you relate to your environment and how you can make life changing choices for showing up with a different mindset. Practice does make a difference. Start your day with intention. "Where intention goes, energy flows." James Redfield
