Understanding Community – Promoting Resilience: Sharing a Community Wellness Activity (a free webinar)
In a multicultural world, with major population shifts due to natural and man-made trauma, we are often forced to become aware of cultural differences as we go about our daily lives.
Even within communities of like-minded individuals, culture differences exist. And the way we perceive wellness itself varies among individuals, and among communities.
Because we are each embedded in our own ways of living, it can be difficult to see which are universal and which are an expression of our particular community’s context. Taking time to understand our limited world view allows us to identify ways to move toward community resilience.
To help each of us see this, Focusing Initiatives is offering a webinar to share a community wellness activity with you, similar to what you will find in our book Reaching Resilience.
This activity will help you:
- see yourself as an individual, a family member, and as a member of a community in a cultural context
- bring awareness and intention to something you haven’t looked at or thought about
- appreciate how people in different cultures and communities may experience the same event in different ways, and
- understand that you can immediately share what you learn/experience with others.
