A new coalition, the Sonoma County Resiliency Collaborative, is offering a free train-the-trainer taught by the Center for Mind Body Medicine. The training program is about the neuroscience of trauma (including new studies about the difference between men and women) with a focus on environmental disasters and trauma and the various techniques to heal from trauma, mainly training a cohort in different forms of meditation. If you weren’t able to join us on July 26 to hear about this opportunity, below there is a link to a video of the event explaining more about this training.
I attended on July 26 and was very impressed by the curriculum. The commitment that is being asked is for 8 days total (see link titled, "Sonoma County Resilience Training" below for more details) for the training and that each Trainer give at least one workshop within the Sonoma County community. If you’d like to ask me more questions, please reach out and I can share everything that I know. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications are due by September 7, 2018. I filled out the application and it took me about an hour to complete. There are two questions requiring 1-2 paragraph answers, but the rest is more straightforward questions (name, address, willing to commit, etc.). Please feel free to use my name for the question on the application “how did you find out about this training” if I am the one that you found out about this from, or state "Sonoma County ACEs Connection."
