Join us for a hands-on workshop where you’ll learn the risks and rewards trauma survivors can experience in mindfulness practice, and be prepared to identify trauma and respond skillfully. David will be weaving in theory with experiential practice. There will be open discussion including Q&A. David will also describe ways you can learn more about Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness teaching methods after the workshop. Participants will leave the workshop with more confidence in:
- Knowing the ways trauma can manifest in meditation practice
- Identifying non-verbal signs of traumatic stress in mindfulness practice
- Practical modifications to help traumatized people safely access meditation.
