    *Note Start Time: 7:30 PM

    With the current mainstreaming of interest in mindfulness, there are a variety of elements of the practice that do not get emphasized.  In this training we’ll consider ways of implementing mindfulness-based approaches that are more attuned to creating safety and supporting nervous system wellbeing and connection.

    GABRIEL KRAM helps professionals develop greater wellbeing, emotional balance, and overcome the effects of toxic stress and vicarious trauma through the development of a trauma-informed approach to mindful awareness.  He also has extensive experience helping youth develop the inner life skills of mindfulness and self-awareness, and training providers in a neurobiologically-savvy mindfulness approach to working with young people.  Gabriel has a deep and abiding interest in and practice of mindfulness, emotional self-awareness, and somatics work.  Over the past eighteen years, these modalities have transformed his life, and he is committed to training organizations and individuals in these tools to transform quality of life and organizational culture.  He is the founder of Applied Mindfulness, Inc., an intervention design, training, and consulting firm that provides transformative experiential training to empower clients of all ages to discover and cultivate the inner resources, tools, and competencies to live healthier, more fulfilling, and effective lives. He previously directed The Mind Body Awareness Project, whose innovative mindfulness-based interventions for incarcerated youth are being scaled into new national models of rehabilitation, and are the subject of both dissertations and peer-review journal articles.  Gabriel studied neurobiology at Yale College, and narrative at Stanford University.  He brings a reverence for indigenous culture, eighteen years of mindfulness practice, ten years of mindful movement, and a lifetime of wilderness exploration, nature awareness, and creative expression to his work.  He is the author of Inner Life Skills for Youth and Transformation through Feeling: Awakening the Felt Sensibility
