S-CAR Event: Mind-Body Skills for Social Change Professionals
- November 12, 2013 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Arlington Campus, Metropolitan Building, Room 5183
This workshop will present practical tools and mind-body exercises such as mindfulness and relaxation techniques, as well as an exploration of the challenges for the inner life of social change work in conflict zones.
Being able to effect social change is just as much about who we are as it is about what we do. Certain personal qualities - such as tranquility, compassion, focus, and presence - can be cultivated through specific techniques and exercises. Such practices also build resiliency and promote healing for social change agents whose work is high stressful, and sometimes traumatizing.
