Last week, SFCC Corpsmembers and staff JP Davis completed a week-long Mindfulness Workshop at the Mindfulness Care Center on 42 Gough St.
The Mindfulness Care Center offers a unique approach that allows an individual to begin feeling whole, safe and more embodied. Mindfulness Based Stress reduction is used to bridge the gap between anxiety, unresolved trauma and stress to living a joyful grounded life. Over the course of the week Buddhist Chaplain Rik Center guided them through a journey of self-reflection and inner growth. Activities included spirited group discussion/dialogue, mindfulness exercises and guided meditation.
Over the course of the week The SFCC Corpsmembers and JP were able to grow and build their knowledge of self while harnessing a new understanding of what Mindfulness truly is.
