Embodied Resilience: Mindfulness for Challenging Times

Presented by Shai Lavie, LMFT

When: Thursday, March 28, 2019, 6:00 pm-8:00 pm

Where: San Rafael Community Center

Adolescence is an emotionally challenging period for kids and parents alike. Embodied resilience, that is, being aware of one’s own and others’ internal / non-verbal body signals strengthens our ability to access internal resources. Shai Lavie, MA, LMFT, works with adults, adolescents, and families in private practice in San Anselmo. He received his Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from the California Institute of Integral Studies in 1995. Shai is certified in the Hakomi Method of mindfulness-based psychotherapy, and a Certified Hakomi Trainer on the faculty of the Hakomi Institute of California. He is certified in the Somatic Experiencing method of working with trauma, developed by Peter Levine.

Admissions is free, and attendees must register in advance at www.cipmarin.org or by calling (415) 459-5999, ext. 101.
