Holistic Healing and Mental Health for Communities of Color

  • Green Tree Yoga 8227 South Western Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90047 United States (map)

The workshop titled, ""Holistic Healing and Mental Health for Communities of Color" was created by musical artist and holistic wellness practitioner Marguerite Alexis Ferrera (http://iammargueritealexis.com)  along with Dr. Thema Bryant Davis (http://www.drthema.com), Psychologist and Sacred Artist and Yoga Teacher Lauren Ross. This workshop will explore  the power of the intersection of natural healing modalities like yoga, reiki, and the creative arts with regard to how it can uplift one’s mental wellness and spiritual consciousness. It will address stigma of mental health in all communities but especially communities of color, focusing on topics such as suicide prevention, trauma, and educating participants on resources on how to apply these holistic practices on their daily lives. In addressing these important issues, the workshop will focus on how the integration of these holistic practices and how they can aid in creating an integrated path to improved Mental Wellness and Recovery. Information on other mental health and holistic resources will also be promoted throughout the workshop. Each of these women of color bring unique perspectives spiritually from their different faith backgrounds to this work. They are all striving to show the power of unity and the beauty of difference in reaching optimal holistic mental health and wellness overall through community, compassion, supporting one another in love.
