Drop-in Session: Cultivating Somatic Safety

Sasha Duttchoudhury

About this Event

Mindfulness allows us to cultivate a sense of safety within our bodies and minds. For some who have experienced bodily trauma, dissociation, dysphoria, and other experiences where our bodies have felt unsafe, mindfulness can be difficult to integrate into our lives. Join us for a discussion of barriers to mindfulness and adaptations to mindfulness practices that support those of us who have not felt safe in our bodies.
