HeartWell Fall 2022
The HeartWell Institute's mission is to foster collective healing through mindfulness and contemplative practices. We have a two-pronged approach; first, we focus on building resilience for BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and those underrepresented in our society by breaking down barriers of access to health and wellness. Second, we are committed to supporting the health and wellness of mental health providers, educators, and our whole community.
MBSR begins with a sense of wanting to live in a way that incorporates key aspects of mindfulness, presence, awareness, and a sense of being in touch with oneself. Through the regular training in mindfulness that an MBSR course offers, participants become familiar with their own behavior patterns, especially in relation to stressful situations.

Mindfulness as a Catalyst for Equity and Collective Healing strives to inspire individuals to become agents for social change by using trauma-informed relational mindfulness practices infused by frameworks of psychosocial and cultural competency.
I learned to respond to a deep yearning with peace and well-being in my heart, how to begin to be free of pain and struggles, and that I'm not alone in this.
