The Shasta Resilience Project was born in 2018 following the devastating Carr Fire. Working with the evidence-based model developed by the
Center for Mind Body Medicine, we offer small groups and workshops designed to heal trauma, manage stress and build resilience.

About the CMBM Model

The Center for Mind-Body Medicine creates communities of hope and healing. It is the world’s largest, most effective evidence-based program for healing population-wide psychological trauma and stress. Bringing together a variety of techniques drawn from the world’s healing traditions as well as modern medicine, the model teaches whole populations to heal themselves. 

Our goal is to equip children and adults in the north state to:

  1. Understand the role of stress and trauma and how they impact physical and emotional health. 
  2. Utilize evidence-based self-care techniques to improve health and wellbeing. 
  3. Normalize honest, open communication that respects all participants and welcomes the healthy expression of emotion. 

Mind-Body Skills Groups

Our Mind-Body Skills Groups provide a
remarkable opportunity to relieve stress, heal
trauma, and build resilience.
