Be the Change: Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence for Self-Care, Deep Collaboration and Conflict Resolution” by Stacey Crowley

April 21 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

“Be the Change: Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence for Self-Care, Deep Collaboration and Conflict Resolution” will be presented by Stacey Crowley at the Sunday, April 21, 2024, meeting of the Ethical Humanist Society of Asheville, 2:30-4:00 PM, at Friends Meeting House, 227 Edgewood Road, Asheville, NC. We hope you will attend in-person. There will also be a Zoom connection. All are welcome to attend.

While restorative justice and social emotional learning initiatives are on the rise in the United States, many adults have not been trained in the conflict resolution or emotional intelligence practices we seek to teach our youth. Additionally, the complexity of 21st Century life and the enormity of the mental health issues we see across the human lifespan create an imperative for parents and educators to tend to our own well-being as the first intervention offered to those in our care.

This highly experiential session, based on the Search Inside Yourself program, combines neuroscience and mindfulness with emotional intelligence training to offer participants foundational practices that promote self-care and build self-awareness, empathy and communication for deep collaboration and conflict resolution.

Stacey Crowley, MA, CCC-SLP (she/her); communicologist, neural architect, storyteller, owner of Learning Tree Literacy, is a certified public accountant turned dually certified speech language pathologist and literacy specialist with over two decades of experience as an educator, public speaker, and professional development provider. Her current work combines her fields of expertise with neuroscience, mindfulness, and nonviolent communication to teach emotional literacy and peaceful conflict resolution to youth.

As a certified teacher for the Search Inside Yourself Leadership Institute, Stacey is passionate about restorative practices and providing state of the art emotional intelligence and compassionate communication training to adults who teach and raise children. Stacey’s work with educational systems focuses on empowering students with the 21st Century skills they need to become engaged citizens who are mentally fit, emotionally intelligent, creative problem solvers capable of deep collaboration. It is Stacey’s core belief that a peaceful planet depends on the human skills we teach, and that these human skills are trainable at all ages and stages of life.
