Inner-City Bliss (ICB) is a mindfulness-based program and workshop provider that was founded in December 2018 with the goal of bringing meaningful change to black and brown communities living in inner cities. ICB prioritizes trauma-informed education, mindfulness practices, and holistic learning experiences for children, adults, families, schools, corporations and other organizations.
Our approach is centered around the understanding that communities of color experience systemic inequalities, trauma, and stress that can have a significant impact on mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Our offerings are designed to address these challenges while incorporating cultural competency and sensitivity in our teachings.
Through our various initiatives, ICB aims to provide individuals with tools and resources to cultivate inner peace, resilience, and empowerment. We believe that by promoting self-care practices, mindfulness, and holistic healing, we can create positive change within marginalized communities.
Trauma-informed Mindfulness: A Holistic Way to Heal
What it is
trauma-informed mindfulness is a holistic way to approach mental health that is gaining in popularity. It is based on the idea that the mind and body are interconnected, and that when one is healed, the other follows. Trauma-informed mindfulness uses specific techniques to help people who have experienced trauma access and process their memories in a safe and healing way.
What it Does
One of the main goals of trauma-informed mindfulness is to help people learn how to manage their physical and emotional responses to stressful situations. By teaching individuals how to better regulate their bodies, they can reduce the risk of further issues arising from unresolved trauma.
Some of the techniques that are used in trauma-informed mindfulness include breath work, guided visualization, and mindfulness practices. Each of these techniques has been shown to be beneficial in managing stress and promoting healing.
The Power of Healing
Overall, trauma-informed mindfulness is a powerful tool for healing. If you're looking for a holistic way to process and heal from your experiences with trauma, consider giving this type of meditation a try. With time and commitment, it can help you to feel more centered and at peace in the present moment.
ICB has joined with BACR and other partners to go into schools and help children who have experienced trauma with meditation and mindfulness practices.
Trauma-informed mindfulness is a proven method of increasing SEL skills. Positive benefits include better health, emotional regulation, and emotional resiliance.
