The events of 2020 have shaken our communities and homes in ways few of us predicted. Amidst a global pandemic and an abolition movement, helpers and healers are as essential as ever. We are called to provide support in ways that stretch us emotionally, physically, and energetically. Supporting clients, patients, and community members begins by cultivating wellness practices for ourselves. This webinar will explore ways that mindfulness can serve as one such wellness practice. Practitioners of various healing approaches can benefit, including mental health practitioners, healthcare providers, caregivers, students, or other essential service providers. Mindfulness, the practice of nonjudgmental awareness of our present here-and-now-experiences, can be practiced for brief or long time periods in various environments. A common misconception about mindfulness is that it must be practiced for lengthy periods of time in ideal conditions. Realistically, these ideal conditions are not always available to us. This experiential webinar will explore the primary attitudes of mindfulness and ways participants can create personal practices to suit their everyday needs. Participants will be invited to engage in various mindfulness activities throughout the webinar with the intention of providing a unique healing experience during this time together. Anyone can benefit from this opportunity to connect with other helpers and healers, regardless of your experience or understanding of mindfulness. We look forward to sharing this experience with you.
