Somatic & Mindfulness-based Approaches to Self-Care & Self-Compassion
January 23 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Those of us who steward the healing or restorative process for refugees and survivors are exposed to secondary suffering and trauma in our daily lives. Our own life stressors, overwhelm and feelings of helplessness and frustration can hinder our engagement in our personal lives and our ability to do our work. This half-day-long playshop provides opportunities for participants to learn some embodied self-care practices. This playshop is open to all who work with refugee communities. The neurobiology of self-care and self-compassion provide scientific rationale for the somatic and mindfulness-based practices covered.
