Maja’s note: In these seminars with teachers there are always new discoveries and realisations that arise out of our mutual sharing around the challenges we face as teachers, the talents we have, our limitations and our aspirations. We get many new ideas around how to use the work of teaching in order to learn and grow ourselves, to avoid burn-out and take better care of ourselves, and to teach with sensitivity, intuition, focus and confidence.
