Mindfulness as Self-Care: Returning to and Nurturing Whole Well-Being
This 90-minute weekly set of trauma-sensitive sessions will focus on secular, universal, anti-oppressive concepts, offer experiential practices not limited to meditation and explore relevant science. Group expectations will be set to foster safety, diversity and inclusion, and the space is intended to support all, including anyone who experiences prejudice, discrimination and micro-aggressions. Participants will receive optional home practice support via weekly suggested practices and audio links to guided meditation.
