HEALING IN HAITI

Spring 2010 onwards, by Urban Zen Staff

“Whatever you’ve been given, it’s to give back.” -Donna Karan.

Haiti taught us that in the midst of disaster, attention turns immediately to reconstructing communities, but the rebuilding of lives begins from within. While many organizations focused on sifting through the rubble to resurrect communities, the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy Program connected with caregivers and survivors – helping them restructure their lives through the practice of healing and self-care. By offering integrative therapies, relaxation, restoration and rejuvenation returned to those who were emotionally, spiritually and physically depleted.
