Healing through Holistic Practice

Course details

This course runs in the Fall and Winter semesters and utilizes breath work, guided meditation, Yin/Hatha Yoga, and expressive art therapies to move students into mindfulness. Simple mindfulness techniques will dissolve anxiety and stress and have been proven to enhance creativity, problem-solving, and decision-making-- skills that are needed not only by "creatives" but by anyone who wants to optimize their work, life, and overall wellbeing. Students will evolve their Indigenous social work practice to create sacred space and engage in personal reflection to let go of past trauma, intergenerational trauma, and the impacts of residential school. Students will develop their Indigenous social work portfolio and develop sacred space in their personal and professional practice.
