Pastoral Master Class in Trauma Mitigation & Resiliency
Time & Location
About the Event
As the tridemic of COVID, racism, and political upheaval stretches into months of uncertainty, pain and loss, people are stretched beyond their capacity - emotionally, physically and spiritually.
For leaders of spiritual communities, tending to personal, emotional, and spiritual resilience is an imperative, and has increased urgency in times such as these. Bearing witness to the pain and trauma of others takes its own toll. This Master Class is an opportunity to center in the Holy with others who are also engaged in this work, and expand capacity to shelter, support and nurture self and others.
Real-time trauma mitigation and resiliency building is the most effective way to retain calm and focus in times of crisis, and to diminish the long-term health and socio- emotional consequences of chronic, toxic stress.
Join us for this 3-day experiential learning where you will fellowship and co-create a space of courage, safety, joy and learning.
I hope to see you there!
