The Dharma Project brings self care in the form of mindfulness and yoga to communities and organizations that experience high levels of stress and/or trauma. This includes public servants like police officers, first responders, teachers, and leaders in government and the nonprofit sector.
Public servants work to solve some of the most challenging problems our city faces. And amidst all of the stressful work they do and the lives they impact, they often forget to take care of one very important person: themselves.
We believe that if public servants have access to self-care services, they can be more effective at their work on a day to day basis and over the long term. With improved health, centeredness, self-awareness, improved body image, and mental & emotional stability, they will be more equipped for high stress situations while simultaneously lowering their risk of burn-out.
