    We would like to emphasize the following days as high leverage moments for MHC’s to be present and available:

    • Transformation of Self
    • Breathe For Presence
    • Breathe For Compassion
    • Breathe for Inclusion
    • Breathe For Social Justice
    • Breathe For Harmony (Pre/Post natal session)
    • Breathe For Inspiration

    Off-Session Time

    Any time the MHC is on site but not in workshop can be considered an opportune time to be available for trainees, or to speak with any members of the training team who need support (trainee or personal).

    MHC’s are responsible for communicating their planned schedule to the Lead Trainers and taking input on that schedule based on trainee needs.
