About the event
There is something every single one of us can do, right now, right where we are to ease suffering. We can start by recognizing where we have power and choosing to use it honorably. And where we don’t have power…we still have a choice to practice compassion and loving-kindness in response to our genuine and warranted despair. Barbara Gibson, Housing Programs Director with the Women’s Resource Center in Decatur, GA, talks about the work of ending domestic violence, choosing to help however we can, rather than give in to hopelessness, and connecting with our innate resilience as one path to safer homes and communities.
Why should you listen to Barbara? Well, she has provided leadership and advocacy with a focus on resilience, compassion, and safety since she joined WRC in 1989. Barbara encourages regular self-nurturing practices to deepen the connection to our innate well-being. Additionally, Barbara is a 200-hour registered yoga instructor and meditation guide with Insight Timer. Barbara is certified by the Trauma Resource Institute as a Community Resiliency Model teacher and has completed Shambhala training Levels I, II and III, as well as Cognitively Based Compassion Training (CBCT). She has appeared on a variety of radio and television programs to explain the importance of building resilience and providing safe places for victims of domestic violence, including children. She believes safer homes and communities are possible.
