Restore & Reflect Event Series
This school year has been one of the most difficult years to be an educator, parent and student. We are living through a global pandemic that is coupled with major loss, grief and a growing mental health crisis all the while transitioning back to “normalcy” at schools. None of this should be normalized.

At FEEST, our students are campaigning for better mental health resources for students and teachers, and we want to take this time to practice embodying mental health with our community.

This is why we’re creating our Summer Rest & Restore Series, to cultivate belonging, play, care, and self & community-preservation. In 3 Sessions with community practitioners, we’ll explore Mindful Meditation, Generative Somatics, and healing spaces.

Join us for our first summer event series, on June 14th from 5-6:30 pm for virtual practice led by Tai Mattox, a Chopra Center certified Primordial Sound Meditation instructor! This session is designed to counteract stress and anxiety by activating participants' parasympathetic nervous systems. We will start with a community check-in, briefly discuss the scientific benefits of mindfulness practices, move into a guided breathing practice and end with “sound bath” (Tai will play singing bowls) intended to promote relaxation. Participants are encouraged to lie down for a portion of our time together, to invite deep rest. Suggested items to bring: yoga mat, blanket, pillow/bolster, bottle of water and anything else needed for your comfort.

These virtual events are FREE and open to students, teachers, parents, and community members.

Evergreen High School folks, Kim Jones will be hosting a space in Room 510. If you would like to host folks, please reach out to multi-gen organizer Fotima Ibrokhim at fotima@feestseattle.org for questions and set ups.

Spanish interpretation is available.
