About this Event

In this safe and supported, experiential class, Buddhist Studies Scholar of Harvard Divinity, Tanny Jiraprapsuke, & Award-Winning Filmmaker / Activist Melissa Center guide us on a transformative journey– a journey that includes reclaiming our voices and our personal stories.

Tanny and Melissa teach with empathy, kindness, and understanding, encouraging us to use our creativity to let go of the pain, self-blame, and shame we may be holding, to find inner strength and a renewed sense of joy and freedom.

If you experience anxiety, fear or other long-standing hurts, this course can help you find your way to a calmer, more confident, more joyous you.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Deepen your sense of self through formal and informal meditation practices that you can apply every day, for the rest of your life

  • Transform pain and anxiety into an abiding sense of well-being and freedom

  • Understand digested trauma as wisdom you can share, rather than an act to condemn yourself

  • Cultivate creative processes for healing your trauma

This course includes:

  • Foundational group exercises to define & practice mindfulness and the “hero’s journey” story structure.

  • Personal coaching from Tanny and Melissa

  • Weekly meditations

  • Weekly writing prompts
