Centered Spaces’ Mind, Body, Service cohorts are offered to individuals who work in nonprofit organizations through a partnership with the Minnesota Council on Nonprofits. A cohort of ten people will be formed throughout 2022 over eight-week engagements.

Each week, cohort members will “experiment” with a scientifically supported Mind-Body technique that can be immediately integrated into daily self-care practice. Sessions will include didactic and experiential components, literally engaging both mind and body. Designed to address and prevent burnout, the cohorts will be educational, supportive, participatory, structured, and fun! It is an opportunity to build a community of care that will carry beyond this intensive time together and foster resilience.

The topics for this series are:

  • February 11— Mind-Body Medicine (MBM) Overview & Soft Belly Breathing
  • February 18 — Biological Underpinnings of MBM & Autogenics & Biofeedback
  • February 25 — Meditation
  • March 4 — Movement
  • March 11 — Guided Imagery
  • March 25 — Dialogue with a Symptom
  • April 1 — Gratitude
  • April 8 — Ritual & Ceremony

Over the eight weeks, you will:

  • Learn scientific and emotional components of self-care
  • Gain insight into developing personalized tools for incorporating self-care into your work and life and more healthily navigating change
  • Grow your understanding of how mind, body, and justice work intersect
  • Build lifelong skills and community
