WHC To Participate In The Shine Program



We are very happy to be working with the Center For Mindful Awareness to bring The SHINE Program to the Women’s Housing Coalition! SHINE (Support Honor Inspire Nurture Evolve) is a carefully structured ten week series of workshops, firmly anchored in current cognitive neuroscience. Participants of the program meet for weekly sessions: meditation, learning and practicing informal mindful awareness skills, conversation and reflection.

We are excited about the positive effects that this program will have on our residents. The benefits of meditation and mindfulness are great and the program ultimately builds resilience so people can respond more effectively to the unique challenges they face.

Resilience and perseverance are two things that we seek to build in our residents, in particular. It’s so important for them to be able to react to situations in a way that is not hurtful to themselves. It’s also important for our residents to continue to build life skills such as mindfulness, conversation and reflection.

We are excited for our residents to participate in the program and look forward to updating your throughout their journey! For more information on the Women’s Housing Coalition, click here.
