Mindful Medicine for Women of Colour

Join other self-identified women of colour for a 6-week therapy group focused on mindfulness and self-compassion.

We will use mindfulness strategies, self-compassion practices, therapeutic dialogue, and journalling exercises to explore issues of diversity, equity, restorative justice and self-care. Trans women welcome and encouraged.

About the Facilitators

Monique is a recent immigrant from Hong Kong after being an international student here for over a decade. Cantonese is her mother tongue; Mandarin and English are her additional languages.

Her practice philosophy is that everyone is the author of their stories. She believes human connection is the basic ingredient for healing. Her counselling approach empathizes the mind-body connection through the lens of cultural humility, somatic experiencing, narrative therapy, and mindfulness practice.
