  • Full Series: $65-$85 sliding scale.
  • Partial Series (workshops only): $65 PER DAY

This 3 day workshop series will be a space for deep healing and a soulful approach to developing emotional strength, intentional communication skills, time & energy management skills, as well as an opportunity to grow and learn with each other. It is designed to support, sustain, and re-fill the capacities of service providers to continue bringing love and care to communities in most need. This is for professionals providing direct service to people in Bay Area schools, youth programs, family and community services, social workers, therapists, counselors, case managers, front line staff in trauma prone environments & communities are encouraged to attend.

Workshops will focus on specific tools to develop:

  • Heightened consciousness in communication needs and techniques to move difficult conversations forward
  • Heightened self-awareness while working with clients by identifying triggers
  • A deeper understanding of what is needed for trauma recovery when triggered

A Vicarious Trauma Healing Hike will offer a much needed time of rest, reflection, and release of the negative energy attachments associated with direct service to clients.

A Vicarious Joy Celebration and picnic at Hummingbird Farm will provide a space of freedom, expression, collective healing and will serve as a closing to this series on Saturday, September 29th 10-4pm.

*Workbooks, supplies, snacks and refreshments will be provided during each workshop. The closing celebration will be a practice of giving and receiving, so we ask that participants provide a fresh and healthy dish to share with each other.
