The bravest and kindest sign of love that anyone can offer to minoritized communities involves understanding. At times, life’s complexities and the diversity of our human experience compel us to create subgroups that end up being marginalized, undeserved and vulnerable. People are not categories. It is not possible to define a human BEing by a two-dimensional checkbox.
This collaborative 4-session online series designed by AlmaYEspiritu will be led by experts in the field of mindfulness in minoritized communities, such as Latinx, Immigrants, People with Addiction, and Survivors of Suicide Loss and the Bereaved. Together, we will explore how mindfulness practices impact vulnerable groups – and what that means for all of us.
The purpose of these sessions is to help develop empathy, compassion, connection, and understanding of what it means to Be vulnerable. Let’s raise awareness beginning with ourselves, and experience mindful ways to feel understood and interconnected. All are welcome as we honor one another during kick off of the National Hispanic Heritage month.
Mindfulness in Latinx and Immigrant Communities
Session 2: Sunday, September 19 at 5:30 pm
This interactive workshop will examine in-depth how mindfulness can be beneficial for overcoming mental health stigmas in the Latinx community, and how it can help immigrant communities cope with acculturative stress. Participants will learn basic tools to implement in their daily lives, and how to integrate these culturally-attuned mindfulness practices. Everyone is welcome!
