This workshop will introduce participants to Capacitar practices including Tai Chi movement, breathing exercises, visualization, finger holds, acupressure protocols, energy exercises and much more.  Taught in over 30 countries worldwide, Capacitar is an intensive, hands-on program of holistic wellness practices for individuals and agencies who serve traumatized people and others in need. The Capacitar practices are effective for self-care as well as for use with individuals and groups in peace building, education, mental health, social work and community service. Capacitar incorporates theory and practice in multicultural and popular education methodologies, enabling participants to teach what they have learned to others.
