First, do no harm. An Introduction to Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness
Date: 17/02/2022
Location: Online

Given the adversity and trauma so many are facing right now, OMC has partnered with David Treleaven, author of the book Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness, to empower you and your students during this challenging time.  

In this interactive, two-hour workshop, David will introduce you to the theory and practice of trauma-sensitive mindfulness. Through lecture, case study, and experiential practice, you’ll leave the workshop:

Aware of the ways trauma can manifest in meditation practice
Confident in identifying non-verbal signs of traumatic stress in mindfulness practice

Equipped with a series of practical modifications to help traumatized people safely access meditation

This workshop is a stand alone event but also (for those who have not attended any of David's previous workshops) a pre-requisite for a more in-depth Trauma Workshop being planned for June 2022 - details to follow.
