You can read the long-form descriptio of our Communities of Practice here. This is a sliding scale tuition payment for the long-form Restorative Practices communities of practice (CoP) beginning in October 2021.
In October 2021, we will re-commence our long-form signature neurodevelopmental community of practice: Restorative Practices of Wellbeing. The community of practice is facilitated by two faculty members of the Restorative Practices Alliance, of different gender and ethnicity. This is a multi-cultural, multi-faceted deep dive into turning on the root drivers of wellbeing. The community of practice been developed and refined over more than a decade of trainings, in collaboration with and based on input and counsel from 40 mentors and advisors in 20 disciplines of wellbeing. In our preliminary outcome studies, course completants experienced on average a 40% increase in self-reported resilience, and a 37% increase in connection assets (stable contact with the root drivers of wellbeing.)
For some people the course has the ability to re-tune the baseline drivers of your Autonomic Nervous System, helping shift you from defensive platforms of fight/flight/shutdown toward platforms of safety and connection.
The course meets for 10 sessions, every other week, with a stable cohort of no more than 15 participants (plus two instructors). Between sessions, participants watch a sequence of films in our Restorative Practices Film Series, and engage in an individually tailored program of neural exercises (restorative practices).
Retail cost of the 10-session training is $3000. This is a sliding scale opportunity.
is Director of Training for Applied Mindfulness, Inc. and the Restorative Practices Alliance, where she is also a member of the Governance Council. She is a Black woman, wife, mother, and facilitator of cross-cultural mindfulness and wellbeing. She is passionate about helping all people– and particularly people who have been marginalized– reclaim their agency, and develop what she calls “Command of Self”: the essential harnessing of mindfulness in daily life as an act of claiming agency, resilience, vitality, space, and sovereignty. She says, "In our work we strive to create safe, embodied, and authentic spaces in which people can learn to connect– with themselves, one another, and the Living World– and dismantle what gets in the way of this. We strive to validate what is Human, build empathy, and come back to ourselves. It is for me work, and also the texture of my daily life as a Black woman in America."
