8-week course: Trauma-informed Mindfulness Program

About the program

You are invited to join an 8-week Trauma-Informed Mindfulness group in which you will learn about how traumatic experiences may have shaped your experience of the world and how to use mindfulness to manage the impact of trauma to move forward.

The ‘stress response’ is a natural response to threats, perceived threats or life events. This natural response is not necessarily negative. For short periods of time, stress may help us perform well in high pressure situations or get us out of a dangerous situation.

When we experience stress a wide variety of physical and psychological symptoms or reactions can occur, most of the time these reactions quickly fade away after the moment has passed. It is when we become “stuck” in stress reactivity or ‘fight or flight’ mode for a prolonged period of time that stress may manifest in ways that have an adverse impact on our physical and psychological well-being.

During the 8 weeks, participants learn to cultivate inner resources and develop skills that help them meet and work with the challenges of life such stress, pain and illness more effectively. Mindfulness offers participants a powerful integrative approach, that when applied to everyday living can lead to health, healing and well-being.

Mindfulness is about turning off our automatic pilot, becoming aware and being present to each precious moment of our lives. This awareness can be used in the service of our learning, growing and healing.
