The psychological component of the campaign concentrates on educating multipliers about detecting and addressing childhood trauma, we stock the schools with trauma therapy material such as the fabulous Trinka & Sam Books for earthquake victims, or toys for non-directive play therapy.
We teach practical tools to build resilience in groups that are exposed to personal crisis, natural disaster or violence. Tools include breath work, focus, and mindfullness through simple yoga exercises, surfing, Horse guided Empowerment© and urban art interventions.

What others say
This was what I needed to do to feel empowered and help empower others...which is what comes around and makes me feel much much better (oh the human weakness of depending on others' wellbeing to be whole).
