About This Event

Our time together will provide an opportunity for helping professionals to connect, discuss, learn, and practice whole mind & body self-care through mindfulness-based strategies and practices.


  • Identify when your moods and mental states are impacted — both positively and negatively — by the state of your body, specifically our nervous system.
  • Regulate your nervous system, build mental fitness, and synchronize your mind and body using movement, breath, rhythm, and stillness.
  • Cross-train your mind and body to feel strong, calm, and clear from head to toe.

Who should attend? Nebraska mental health counselors.
