Event Description

As caring professionals we hear the stories of the ones we serve and witness the range of their humanity.


It’s not our experience yet we are holding space for it. We are carrying it with them.


This can result in what has been called “vicarious trauma,” “secondary trauma,” “compassion fatigue,” and “trauma exposure response.”


This workshop is for you if you are a caregiver, counselor, nurse, doctor, or other professional supporting others in their suffering and humanity.


Learn the signs, symptoms, and ways you can support your body and mind through your work.


In this environment space is held for you instead of you holding space for others, allowing you to reconnect with the “why” of your work and tune into what your particular BodyMind needs to stay regulated throughout your day.


This approach blends a bottom-up approach to the brain through movement and breath with top-down mindful inquiry to support whole-brain integration and allow for replenishing on a deep level.


You will learn how to track your own physiology and nervous system so it's easier to regulate during stress and dysregulating interactions.


No yoga experience required. Includes slow, full-body movement. Please bring a yoga mat.


Led by Monique Minahan, registered yoga teacher and author of The Grief Practice.


Please note: We will be in the "Roelf's Room" on the third floor. Park in the rear of the building and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.
