Heroic Self-Care – Houston, TX

October 14, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT

Heroic Self-Care - Houston, TX

Impact Your Life with Mind-Body Skills

A Restorative Saturday Retreat for Veterans, Veteran Caregivers, and VSOs

Provided by Impact a Hero and the Institute for Spirituality and Health

Join us Saturday, October 14th, for a day of self-care introducing you to Mind-Body Skills to assist in stress reduction and trauma relief. As a participant, you will learn and experience valuable ways and techniques to enrich your life, while enjoying a time of relaxation and healing. The skills we will learn may include breathing, movement, guided imagery, and biofeedback to help you regulate your nervous system and generate your own relaxation.

These mind-body skills are drawn from the program model of the world-renowned Center for Mind-Body Medicine. These evidence-based skills have been implemented for communities around the world to help them heal from the impacts of war, natural disaster, or other community-wide trauma. The mind-body skills groups repeatedly demonstrate 80-90% reduction in those qualifying as having PTSD, and they can be transformative for anyone seeking tools to manage stress, improve relationships, and cultivate mental and physical well-being. The Institute and other non-profit partners brought this program to Houston after Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Since then, our Greater Houston Healing Collaborative has taught mind-body skills to over 30,000 individuals in the Greater Houston region. This retreat is an opportunity for you to experience the power of mind-body medicine for your own growth and renewal, and to learn valuable skills to integrate into your life and work, within your family and the organizations where you serve.
