This week of training and reflection will offer a variety of mindful practices to live in wellness and to open ourselves to the fullness of life. As we face stress, trauma, grief and anxiety resulting from the pandemic, disasters, violence, aging and other challenges in our world, we can learn how to live as still points bringing peace and healing to ourselves and to those around us. Since 1988, Capacitar has worked in over 45 countries (in the Americas, Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe) teaching holistic practices which empower people to heal themselves, their families and communities. Many of our Capacitar teams have been led by Maryknoll Sisters and Associates serving in places of poverty, war, trauma and disaster giving people skills so they can work effectively for peace and healing in the midst of their challenges. This training will offer stories from the field and share Capacitar practices that can be used for self-care and work with others.
