I have been so busy over the past several months planning The Zen Teacher Retreat and working on a couple other Hyper Top Secret Zen Teacher projects, that I have been neglecting talking about my new book Sanctuaries: Self-Care Secrets for Stressed Out Teachers that was released last December.

And one of the funnest (<—and yes, I AM an English teacher) things I was looking forward to was doing a book giveaway.

So that’s what this post is all about.

If you would like a chance to win a free copy of Sanctuaries: Self-Care Secrets for Stressed Out Teachers, simply leave a comment (25 words or less) on this blog post* by midnight on Wednesday, May 29, 2019 that answers the following question:

What does it mean to YOU to be a Zen Teacher? 

I will put the names of everyone who comments in a hat and draw a random winner and announce the winner by Wednesday, May 29th.  I will also then request an address where you’d like me to send the book.

Please check back and see who won!

In Sanctuaries, you will learn the importance of:

  • Intentional and Radical Self-Care
  • Permission
  • The 5 S’s
  • Tiny Shifts
  • Rituals
  • Margins
  • Bliss Stations
  • Play

It’s a great book that I’m very proud of and I would be thrilled if I could send you a copy because it’s one of my missions to help teachers reduce their stress and improve their self-care.

I want to be your go to guy for Teacher Wellness  and if you’re an educator who works in a modern educational system and are feeling the weight of the various stressor that are driving you toward burnout, you need this book.

One way to get it is to enter this contest.

Here’s another.

Sanctuaries (and its author) want to show you how to maximize your performance without sacrificing yourself.

To me, being a Zen Teacher is keeping calm, but also enjoying every day as a teacher.
