Is this course for me?
If you haven’t already heard, we’ve decided to make CONNECTION IN ACTION (previously Level 2) accessible to everyone, not only graduates of our in-person 15-Hr. Trauma Informed Outreach Training. Why the change?
With the present social and political divide, many of us are overwhelmed with fear for the future, for our children and the planet as a whole. When conflict arises that seems larger than us, it’s common to feel paralyzed. Anger, sadness, frustration and confusion separates us from each other and leaves us feeling alone and powerless.
As we scroll through our social media feeds and witness the latest news or read a friend's post that leaves us feeling triggered, many of us silently wonder, “What’s happening?, What can I possibly do?, How can I be a part of the solution?”
We at Connection Coalition believe it starts by having the meaningful conversations in brave spaces where your authenticity and curiosity is always welcome. We created the CONNECTION IN ACTION online course because we believe there are many of us seeking clarity and connection among the current chaos.
Our 15+ years as a national yoga service non-profit have taught us that #ConnectionIsTheCure.
We believe that each of us have the potential to positively impact change, yet we must begin with ourselves and the way in which we relate with our friends, family, co-workers and local community.
Together we will navigate the difficult issues, identify accessible solutions based on heart-centered action and strive towards new levels of both societal and personal awareness.
*Recommendation: Our CONNECTION IN ACTION online training is open to anyone seeking to deepen their skill & capacity to navigate the division caused by today’s social and political climate. This online course expands upon the content presented in our in-person 15-Hour Trauma Informed Outreach Training, although the courses may be taken separately or combined in any order.
