Weekend Resiliency Immersion Training: A Mindfulness Intensive

There are few training resources, currently, in the mindfulness arena that resonate with police culture.  Most of the resources out there require us to reach into our zone of discomfort to explore the possibilities. This is healthy, however, a small group of us is changing the current landscape of training resources. By the end of 2016, we will have launched seminars, 2 day and 5 day resiliency immersion trainings for police officers. These mindfulness intensives, will offer police officers an opportunity for introspection and transformation. 

These trainings will meet the humanitarian-warrior where they stand, in all that comes with the journey, healthy and unhealthy. We’ll reconnect the officer to the authentic warrior ethos that most of us started our career with, and we will teach skills of resiliency for mind, body, and heart. The journey begins here- this is not mere training, our mission is to facilitate a transformative journey, that we walk together. We build our warrior community.

About Richard Goerling
Thank you for visiting my blog! My goal is to create a place that allows us to learn from each other, support our first responders, and, perhaps, find ways to facilitate human sustainability and cultural evolution in public safety. My expertise is in policing, yet we share similar occupational stressors, experiences, cultural attitudes and behaviors with our friends and colleagues in the fire service, at the dispatch centers, and in the field and emergency departments with our medics, nurses and doctors. Trauma bonds us. It goes without saying that all of this is relevant for our brothers and sisters serving in the military. I've learned most of what I know about stress management from these great warriors. Let us learn from each other. This blog will explore that trauma bond. We'll look at the work of authors, professors, journalists, and other subject matter experts in diverse disciplines in an effort to improve the resilience (wellness, health, attitude, motivation, etc.) of our first responders. Join us here in the dialogue and let's work together to make a difference, one conversation at a time. Peace.
