Racial Equity + Mindfulness in the Workplace

“I struggled to fully ground, connect with mind/body without allowing distractions to interfere. Davia provided mindfulness and meditation activities for my group. Now, I have a better understanding of myself and my body. I definitely strive to be my best self on a daily basis. Davia helped inspire me to be 100% okay with taking care of myself and my wellness.

She also facilitated a workshop on power and oppression for volunteers at our agency and was able to connect a loaded topic in a very relational way. Davia is so personal and professional. She makes you feel welcome, heard, and understood. She also has a way of explaining things to help bring about a deeper awareness.” - Ashleigh Gore, LCSW, Director of Counseling Services

“I always said yes, even when I was mentally and physically exhausted. I was not taking time for myself, especially when I needed it the most. After attending, 'Breathe Easy: Cultivating peace as helping professionals', I am less stressed at work because I know I am doing my best and remembering to take time for myself. I am able to "say no" now and have learned that taking care of myself is just as important as helping my clients take care of themselves.

Davia was so welcoming and friendly. She did not make me feel guilty for taking time for myself. She told me it was ok to "say no," when I was overwhelmed and could not take on another project. I am able to leave the work at work and enjoy my time outside of work.” - Leigh Anne Hoorman, BSW, Service Coordinator
