Rituals for Recovery (RfR) promotes mind-body wellness and social-emotional learning (SEL) by creating spaces for communities to learn and connect through mental health education and the healing arts. RfR trains educators, licensed healthcare professionals, community leaders, and employers on how to facilitate trauma-informed based discussions, become trauma-responsive, and create a culture of care within their organizations.

Our “Rebuilding Communities” projects provide virtual and interactive SEL opportunities, as well as trauma-responsive mind-body wellness instruction, education, and training to aid in recovery. The curriculum fosters self-efficacy, builds a recovery program, and provides a toolkit that focuses on ongoing trauma-informed SEL initiatives. These initiatives aim to advance education equity, building the capacity to model these skills for others.

We are proud to offer TRMBW™ & SEL training to individuals and organizations around the world! Our growing list of global graduates currently live and work in these regions: Canada, South America, Europe, Southeast Asia, and Romania.

What our clients have to say

"I embarked on this program with the intention of helping others, but it quickly became apparent that this program was going to provide me with the healing I required first, in order to help others." I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to Amanda, the expert instructors, and all the other people involved that have made this program accessible. Their dedication, passion, support and knowledge are evidence that healing trauma (in all forms) is essential and possible for all individuals, families, communities and the collective as a whole. I would highly recommend this program it is most transforming. I now view my life and others through a trauma informed lens.

"A light bulb went off in my head the week Amanda pointed out that the question to ask is not “What is wrong with this person”, but rather “What happened to this person” which switches it from judgment to compassion " . I am inspired to share this magic with the world and work with the Military Families to help make a difference. I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to become empowered to change their life and to help others to do the same.

Choices, flexibility, authenticity, and empathy are the linchpins to success.
