Capacitar, in Spanish, means to empower, to awaken, to bring one another to life. Capacitar teaches simple holistic wellness practices which enable people to reconnect with their own wisdom and capacity, promoting healing, wholeness and peace.
This training is for everyone – professional caregivers, community activists, parents, volunteers, those who work with refugees, the homeless or the impoverished, and those with issues of physical or mental health, abuse, trauma or violence.
Using a grassroots popular education approach, the training enables you to pass on what you have learned to the people and communities with whom you work.
Over the four modules, participants will learn, experience, and develop energy practices for use with individuals and groups. By the end of the training you will have:
A basic proficiency in Capacitar wellness practices including Tai chi, finger holds, head holds, EFT (tapping), acupressure and breath work;
An understanding of the theories and methods that form the basis of Capacitar’s work, including trauma theory, energy field theory, multicultural wellness, leadership development, healing systems, and popular education;
Ideas on how to use a popular education model to share your knowledge;
A supportive community/global vision with a commitment to personal healing.
A limited number of bursaries are available for individuals not otherwise able to meet the costs.
The fee includes:
- The Manual Trauma Healing & Transformation by Pat Cane, PhD.
- Additional readings for each module made available digitally.
- Lunch, refreshments and use of the facilities at the Bield Retreat Centre.
Participants should be committed to attending all four training modules.
