Resources in Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Healing
Psychotherapist Ralph Steele and I are working independently this year in support of our visions of inclusion and healing. I warmly recommend Ralph’s courses. His next group Embodying Emotions with Somatic Meditation begins January 11th, 2023. His center, The Life Transition Meditation Center is working on a new project with military veterans. Ralph Steele (US Army Veteran) and Debbee Maraglio-Lynn (US Navy Veteran) are leading the organization of this Veteran Meditation Retreat planned for October, 2023.
The Ayurveda Polarity Therapy & Yoga Institute’s Mission is to offer accessible and sustainable trainings in Ayurveda, Polarity Therapy, and Yoga. Within a container of learning, we hold space for inclusive, diverse, equitable, and innovative participation and perspectives.
