La Maida Project & Terryberry Partner Webinar – Healing Together: Redefining Health Through Interconnection


05/02 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET

We are living amidst a growing mental health crisis– many are living in a state of tremendous disconnection from their bodies, emotions, relationships, communities, and nature. Current solutions around mental health often lean heavily towards fixing our health through an individual lens, concentrating on modifying personal health and behaviors in isolation.

However, these conventional strategies often fall short, leaving critical gaps in addressing the multifaceted nature of mental wellness. La Maida Project (LMP) is working to address these gaps by embracing an ecological lens: one that reminds us to address the root causes of disconnection and promote collective healing.

In this webinar, we will uncover methods to amplify workplace wellness solutions and personal routines by infusing interconnection into existing practices. We will explore essential principles for fostering genuine connection, such as community support, trauma-informed care, and co-regulation practices.

Attendees will gain practical skills to reconnect with themselves, their colleagues, their purpose, and the natural world. By incorporating activities that boost employee engagement and deepen connections within the workplace community, we empower attendees to pave the way for a renewed approach to health in workplace cultures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explore principles of interconnection and how they address root causes of disconnection
  • Reflect on personal and organizational values to align with a renewed approach to health
  • Discover practical activities to boost employee engagement and deepen workplace connections
  • Learn how to leverage LMP’s concepts in the workplace and in daily life
