Healing Retreat for People of Color

The Healing Retreat for People of Color (HRPOC) seeks to transform generational suffering into  generational wellness by teaching the ancient practices of yoga, meditation, breathwork, and mindfulness as invaluable life tools. The inherent substance, meaning, viability, and foundation that lie within these practices are essential and necessary for the health and well-being of People of Color and other impacted groups.

The challenges facing the body, mind, and spirit of people of color are vast.  They often disproportionately affect physical and mental health, socio-economic status, employment opportunities and much more. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted these conditions. The disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on the BIPOC community results in higher instances of illness and death.

Date : 5th December 2021

12:00 pm to 4 pm EST

 Injustice, which is often a daily occurrence in this community, also compromises the health and well-being of people of color. Depression, anxiety, and the lack of control over one’s life circumstances challenge  ones’ wellbeing. Social factors (stressors) such as under-employment, unemployment, poverty, lack of resources, and the adverse impact of racism and the criminal justice system contribute to the poor health status of many BIPOCs. These conditions undermine the body, mind, and spirit and result in increased bio-psycho-social illnesses among our communities.

The Healing Retreat for People of Color will teach that the ancient practices of yoga, meditation, breathwork and mindfulness as contemporary life support. The inherent substance, meaning, viability and sturdiness that lies within these practices are essential for the health and wellbeing for People of Color.

The Art of Mindful Communication

Heard about, “communication is key” many times before? It’s true, isn’t it? It really is key to both interpersonal relationships and work life but practicing mindful communication can be a challenge. It requires us to slow down, be thoughtful, and learn to listen more — certainly not an easy thing to do.

In this session, not only will you learn how to apply mindful communication, you will also unravel your ability to think before you speak, make you aware of your intention and expectations that may or may not be met.

Benefit from the art of Mindful Communication this August and join Ivy Child International

Date : 11th August 2021
