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.
Small Groups Icon

Small Group Format

8-week small groups provide a safe, confidential space to learn tangible skills to calm the physiological responses to stress. 

Workshops Icon


Introductory workshops are a great way to quickly learn a few stress-management skills, and explore the science of mind/body medicine. Workshops can last from 1-4 hours and can be delivered in person or online. 

Drop In Groups Icon


Drop-in groups offer an opportunity for participants to try the group process without the commitment of an 8-week group. 

You are invited to attend our Shasta Resilience Project Retreat this Saturday, May 11th. Optional sessions at 8 and 1 with the main event happening from 9 to 1 at The McConnell Foundation.

Open to facilitators, past participants and people interested in decreasing stress and increasing wellness through mindfulness.

$20 covers all materials and lunch.  Sign up here so that we have enough food and let us know you are coming!

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. 

Groups and workshops are available on site and online. Let us know you’re interested by clicking the link below and we will connect you with an opportunity. If you are interested in bringing a workshop or group to your workplace or organization, you can let us know that, too. We are passionate about bringing these skills into our communities.
