Awareness, Balance, and Connection: The ABC’s of Resilience

Humanitarian aid work takes place in challenging – and often dangerous – contexts. Chronic stress, burnout, and the constant exposure to others’ suffering all take a well-documented toll on well-being and performance. You plan your work thoughtfully and carefully for maximum impact on the beneficiary population. Have you given equal thought to caring for yourself, to maintain your well-being and effectiveness in the field?

 

Contemplative-Based Resilience Training (CBRT) for Humanitarian Aid Workers

CBRT is an integrated, evidence-based intervention tailored to enhance the resilience of aid and humanitarian workers. Taught by an outstanding faculty, including internationally renowned meditation teacher Sharon Salzberg and former and current aid workers, the program incorporates education, meditation, restorative yoga and bodywork, and community-building exercises to enhance and sustain physiological and psychological resilience. A substantial and growing body of evidence has demonstrated the effectiveness of the techniques employed in the CBRT program, which are grounded in cutting-edge research into human resilience.

Located at the Garrison Institute in Garrison, New York, the program format provides ample time to enjoy the beautiful grounds on the banks of the Hudson River, and to hike on peaceful trails in the Hudson Valley.

The cost of the program is $750, inclusive of room and board and all program fees. Some scholarship assistance is available. Please contact Teri Sivilli for more information.
