Selected Workshops & Programs

Through a respectful and interactive approach to teaching (including practice-circles, small and large-group discussions, questionnaires, role-plays and other exercises), participants are encouraged to share their experiences and skills and to build on their own strengths. Essential knowledge is provided, community-based strategies are developed, and techniques are practiced that promote a physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual balance that simultaneously enhances and integrates individual and community well-being.

All workshops and programs can be tailored to the specific needs of your community. For a listing of workshops and programs, please contact Thira Consulting
