CMBM Project


Hill Country is proud to parter with the Community Recovery Team and other local partners on the Center for Mind Body Medicine Resilience Project. Nearly 100 volunteers from our region are being trained in CMBM’s model which brings together mindfulness and meditative practices in a supportive, small-group setting. This model has been utilized around the world to promote healing after a collective community trauma. As our region moves forward after the devastating wildfire season of 2018, the CMBM Project will equip our community with valuable skills to reduce stress and improve resiliency.

COMING in Spring 2020:

Community Workshops
Facilitators are available to lead workshops and presentations for your school, church, workplace, or community group. Workshops can be tailored to fit your needs and can last anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Participants will gain a basic understanding of how stress and trauma impact overall health, and learn some tangible tools to manage the effects of stress on our physical and emotional health. To request a workshop, contact Amy Cavalleri.

Small Group Experiences
Small groups meet once a week for 8 weeks. In a safe, confidential setting, participants learn tools to manage stress such as meditation, breathing exercises, drawing, writing, movement, and guided imagery. This evidence-based group model has been shown to significantly reduce the symptoms of PTSD, anxiety and stress. Public group opportunities will be posted on this website as they become available.

CMBM Small Group Opportunities
Small groups meet for 8-10 weeks and provide a safe, confidential setting to build community and learn tangible skills to manage stress and trauma. Groups are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required. Please contact the facilitator for further details or to register. Please note that a commitment to 100% attendance is encouraged for all group participants. No drop-ins. More small group opportunities will be coming in Spring, 2020. Check back later for details, or follow us on Facebook for updates.
