Mindful Self-Care with Shelly Tygielski

In this 8-part series, you'll learn to nourish the core of your being in a way that will help you weather uncertainty, communicate and listen with compassion, and help you work together towards a better, shared future for us all. Self-care is not frivolous; self-care is a radical act of love.

Grassroots mindfulness activist Shelly Tygielski spent almost 20 years in corporate America before becoming a teacher of “modern-life mindfulness” full-time. Shelly has taught mindfulness to trauma workers, women’s groups, social justice organizations, schools, athletes, and corporations. She co-hosted a loving-kindness event with Sharon Salzberg to serve the Parkland school community. Now she leads group mindfulness sessions on the beach in Florida, and takes mindfulness to the heart of trauma, helping the families of Parkland cope with unimaginable loss.
