About the event
To be in service to others does not mean to be in sacrifice to oneself. There is growing evidence that the impact of directly supporting others through experiences of trauma, oppression, and poverty, goes beyond burnout or fatigue. The toll of constantly witnessing and holding space for heavily charged human emotions and experiences can distort views about the self, the world, and the future. Individuals who have chosen to be in service to others, often sacrifice their mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being to meet the demands of this calling. During this interactive enlightenment session, participants will engage in a learning journey of self-exploration, discovery, healing, and conscious action.
During this session, JVH will offer a safe and supportive space to:
- Define and differentiate between the different types of trauma.
- Recognize the effects of trauma and its impact on the human mind, body and spirit.
- Explore the oppressive systems and structures that perpetuate trauma and stress.
Through JVH’s healing-centered facilitation framework, participants in this session will receive a safe and supportive space to heal, unite and take collective action toward individual and collective healing, liberation and empowerment. These session components are designed to support participants’ comfort and confidence in the digital learning environment.
