We are celebrating the completion of the first phase of our inaugural two-year Facilitator Training Institute. The second phase of the program will focus on the SHINE program at the Women’s Housing Coalition. This phase allows the Facilitator Trainees to observe and directly participate in an on-site program with the residents. YOU can be an important part of this exciting new phase.
“In deep self-acceptance grows a compassionate understanding…”
This Saturday, Jack Kornfield will lead a workshop in Washington, DC, and on September 29 Jon Kabat-Zinn and US Congressman Timothy Ryan will be part of a free interdisciplinary symposium in Baltimore. Join us to learn, laugh, practice and be inspired!
