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, we will activate the power participants have to anchor in restorative practices to feel, process and release the various traumas that affect how we show up in the spaces we lead and for the people we love. Participants will also think critically about the types of community partners and services needed to honor the mental and emotional needs of the individuals they serve.
JVH will offer a safe and supportive space to:
- Explore restorative practices for mental, emotional and physical health and wellness.
- Identify the types of community partners, services and promising practices that promote mental and emotional wellness for residents.
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.
