Mindfulness as a Catalyst for Equity and Collective Healing

April 28, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm UTC+0

$360

Mindfulness as a Catalyst for Equity and Collective Healing strives to inspire individuals to become agents for social change by using trauma-informed relational mindfulness practices infused by frameworks of psychosocial and cultural competency. The foundational pillars of this program are grounded in fostering trust, acceptance, and compassion to facilitate a transformational journey with life-long personal, interpersonal, social, and global impact.
This program is ideal for individuals who appreciate the layers of conditioning in our current societal dynamics, and who are willing to explore the role they play in such dynamics and the possibilities for growth, choice, and change. This process requires a commitment to self-reflection and a willingness to be vulnerable while being held in a non-judgmental, safe, and compassionate environment. Psychologists, Licensed Mental Healthcare Workers, Social Workers, and Educators can earn 32.5 CEUs upon completion of the training. This is an 8 week course that occurs every Friday from 4/28/23 to 5/26/23.
