The complexities of life and diversity of our experiences often compel us to create subgroups that become vulnerable and marginalized. Yet, human beings cannot be wholly defined or understood by these categories or checkboxes.
What might we do to build more mindful, inclusive communities?
According to Criss Cuervo, founder and executive director of AlmaYEspiritu, the bravest and kindest sign of love that anyone can take towards a vulnerable community is attempting to understand them. Join Criss for this CFPL Mindful Wellness Series session that honors vulnerable communities such as Latinx, Immigrants, People with Addiction, Survivors of Suicide Loss and the Bereaved.
The purpose of this online session is to help develop empathy, compassion, connection, and understanding of what it means to be vulnerable. Together, we will explore how mindfulness practices impact vulnerable groups – and what that means for all of us.
All are welcome as we honor one another during National Spanish Heritage Month!
