About the School for Compassionate Action
Uniquely structured to teach clinicians and professional caregivers the tools and techniques to integrate mindfulness and embodiment practices into local and international communities in need.
SCA trained and in training professionals attend to those suffering with chronic pain and illness, trauma and addictions. Through experiencing the benefits of a personal mindfulness practice and actually embodying the practice through direct experience, clinicians carry a wealth of insight, understanding, wisdom and kindness into their specific fields of interest.
Additionally, they are able to alleviate burn out and compassion fatigue by practicing skills of self – care, regulation and emotional intelligence.
