Aevidum is excited to launch Aevidum Mind, our new mindfulness program. Developing Aevidum Mind means to develop a capacity for knowing how to help people (including yourself) when you (or anyone else) is going through something.
Aevidum Mind means having empathy and presence in our daily lives. By developing this awareness, we will be better able to care for our own body, mind and spirit, which will help us understand and be supportive of other people in our lives.
Aevidum Mind includes knowing how to be supportive, when and where to get help, and how to be of service. Developing this capacity means that we will learn how to take care of ourselves in healthy ways and also how to help each other.

Aevidum Mind’s Guided Mindfulness for Educators is a collection of guided mindfulness practices for time-crunched teachers who want to find some time for self-care.
These practices give teachers a time to prioritize their own health and well-being so that they can be resilient both in and out of the classroom.
Because teachers are outwardly caring and compassionate people, much of their time and energy is devoted to meeting the needs of their students. By taking the time to pause and listen, teachers are investing in their health and well-being which will ultimately impact the students health and well-being. (and therefore their ability to learn).
These practices are specifically created for teachers and the concepts will immediately be transferable to the classroom so both students and teachers will benefit.
We need to recognize and accept things the way they are, not the way we wish they were in order to really move forward. We start with practicing accepting how our breath feels, how our body moves, and what sounds surround us.
When we practice acknowledging our thoughts and emotions, they get less on a loop and stop manifesting themselves in other ways. We begin to respond, rather than react when we acknowledge we are ruminating or thinking about something, or that something may be difficult for us.
When we practice gratitude we are appreciating what challenges may lie before us. Gratitude helps us appreciate simplicity. Whether that be a student’s smile, a thoughtful email from a parent or an in person visit from a colleague. Even if we don’t like it all, we can still be grateful for the journey.
Caring practice helps us learn how to both care for ourselves and others. We don’t only care for people who are kind to us, but we also care for those who are different than us and send ourselves caring wishes even if we don’t do things perfectly or exactly the way we think they should have.
