AWE METHOD presentations

Bringing tools and strategies to educators to help them create wellness habits by creating a culture of resiliency, self-regulation and awareness.


Through the AWE method, Lisa Baylis helps organizations create cultures of resiliency, self- compassion, and awareness. Educators develop wellness habits for themselves first, and then their families and classrooms second. This creates a ripple effect of wellbeing.
By learning the “ABCs” of wellbeing, educators dig deeper into the WHY, the HOW, and the WHAT we need to do to create school systems that support our wellbeing, and that of our students.

Past attendees continually attest to Lisa’s authentic and emotionally engaging speaking style — all with the type of lightness that can illuminate a room.
