This is an online event.
Joining instructions will be provided after booking.
Mindfulness practice is becoming increasingly popular, and many people who are turning to the practice also bring with them a history of trauma and anxiety. The majority of us will experience a traumatic event at some point in our lives, and 20% of us will develop post-traumatic stress. This means that anywhere mindfulness is being practiced, someone in the room is likely to be struggling with trauma. For some, traumatic stress and anxiety can be exacerbated by mindfulness and other meditative/contemplative practices, so it is helpful to practice mindfulness in a trauma-sensitive way.
Join us for this online event, which will include mindfulness practice, brief talks, conversation, and silence. This online retreat is designed to offer mindfulness practice in a supportive way for those of us impacted by trauma, as well as for those who want to experientially explore using mindfulness to help trauma survivors.
