Inner-City Bliss (ICB) began in December of 2018 with the aspiration of providing trauma-informed yoga and meditation techniques to as many people as possible. ICB fledged in Alameda County working with schools and organizations across the Bay Area, predominantly in Oakland with the mission to provide resources and support to black and brown communities residing within the inner cities. Inner-City Bliss offers a wide range of online and in-person courses, counseling, and community to all ages, genders, races, religions, identities, and backgrounds.
Inner City Bliss strives to bring people together in a shared experience of blissful healing. Join our community on the path towards self-realization, wholeness and compassion by contacting us today. We would love hear your thoughts about what "creating bliss" means for you!
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.
