Reconnecting Body & Mind

About Reconnecting Body and Mind

Thanks to the NL Community Living Fund, The NLSACPC is thrilled to launch the Reconnecting Body and Mind Program. Reconnecting Body and Mind is a free weekly skill-building and healthy living peer support group for people impacted by sexual violence. Sessions may include movement classes, nature walks, art, and nutritious cooking classes. Each week, participants will leave the workshop with a new skill and/or a physical gift that they can take with them.

All sessions will either be held at the NLSACPC office (15 Hallett Crescent) or at other locations throughout St. John’s. We strive to make all our sessions fully accessible, but we recognize that this is not always possible due to budget constraints. However, all locations will be accessible by bus and have parking available. This program is open to individuals of all genders who are over 18 years old, and pre-registration is required. ASL interpretation, travel stipends, and child-minding are also available upon request.

For more information, please email programs@EndSexualViolence.com or call the Centre at 709-747-7757 (Ext. 1)

Stay tuned for more announcements on upcoming Reconnecting Body and Mind workshops!
