What is the relationship between mindfulness, vulnerability and mental health? This workshop explores the distinction between mental health and mental illness, and presents actionable practices focused on “mental hygiene” as a path to mindful wellness. Together, we’ll examine how mindfulness practice can help us overcome mental health stigmas and cope with acculturative stress. Participants will learn basic tools to implement in their daily lives, and ways to integrate these culturally-attuned mindfulness practices during every season of life.
Designed by the international mindfulness organization AlmaYEspiritu, the purpose of United in WellBEing sessions is to develop awareness of our human vulnerability with empathy, compassion, and connection. All are welcome as we mindfully honor ourselves and one another in community.
Led by Criss Cuervo, Charity Collier and Elaine Ramos-Rodriguez
