Even before the pandemic brought unprecedented challenges to the educational system, educators faced disruption to their careers. Rising issues related to mental health and wellness, especially on US college campuses, were further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many educators are left wondering if they have what it takes to keep moving forward.

Mentally, physically, spiritually exhausted, they are simply going through the motions. Will they find joy and happiness in their careers again? Can they help their colleagues and students build resilience despite the stress and uncertainty?

Experiencing happiness and joy in one’s chosen profession can be the norm–not the exception.

And that is what The Wellbeing Elixir aims to help you do.

Developed by educators, The Wellbeing Elixir, a new Magna Online Course, helps higher education professionals explore wellbeing and resilience so they can be stronger and less stressed in their personal and professional lives.

Achieving overall wellbeing and resilience is a balance of physical, emotional, mental, social, and spiritual practices and indicators. If you’re like many other education professionals, you recognize this. Maybe you’ve taken some steps to improve your well-being, or have tried to help your colleagues and students.

But this is a heavy burden to bear, especially alone.

Designed by Educators for Educators

The presenters of The Wellbeing Elixir are educators like you. They have gone through similar challenges and searched for answers from both ancient traditions and modern scientific methods. They will guide you step-by-step through this hybrid online course. You will learn how to be more resilient when you experience setbacks in your career and personal life. And you will gain the tools to help others, too.

Through this in-depth, 18-hour, six-unit Magna Online Course, you will explore several concepts related to wellbeing and resilience, including:

  • Exploring what gives your life meaning
  • Learning self-care strategies to improve mind, body, and spirit
  • Practicing biofeedback mechanisms and learning the role of neuroplasticity to support your wellbeing
  • Discussing ancient traditions and learning what science says about these methods today
  • Learning how you can contribute to a more joyful workplace
  • Making meaningful connections with your peers, from your campus or anywhere else in the country
  • Identifying your core values and characteristics, and learning how to apply them so you can lead a more fulfilled, meaningful life

A Course Unlike Any Other

The Wellbeing Elixir includes a mix of asynchronous learning and monthly, live group Zoom sessions. 

The asynchronous portion of the course features videos, transcripts, supplementary materials, assignments, and reflection questions to further enhance your learning. Each module provides materials that support many styles of learning and offers additional research for those who want to dig deeper into a particular subject.

You can complete these videos and assignments on your own schedule. At the end of the six units, you’ll receive a certificate of completion. Because you’ll have access to all course materials for a full year, you can revisit and refresh your learning as you progress through your wellness goals.

The synchronous portion of this course–which is unlike any other course Magna Online offers–includes a monthly Zoom session. You’ll meet with your fellow participants and the course presenters. No other course gives you this kind of regular, direct access to the course presenters. Participants can move through the course at their own pace throughout the year and check-in each month for deeper learning and discussion. Join during the month you begin the course; the schedule will repeat, and you’ll be able to complete all 12 topics.

Monthly Zoom Topics

Each month, the presenters Drs. Seena and Stuart Haines will host a zoom meeting for all the course participants. This is your time to ask questions, receive feedback, and learn from your peers. You’ll appreciate the added depth that this learning community will add to your experience.
