Healing Happens Here…


eMBER : Mindfulness Based Emotional Resilience

At its core, EMBER’s aim is simple: to provide tools to help people feel at home in their bodies. During the multi-week training, the curriculum builds community while developing the foundations of resilience: the capacity to bounce back from difficulty by drawing on inner reserves of calm, clarity, compassion, and courage.

EMBER is a mindfulness-based resilience training geared specifically toward men and women rebuilding their lives after experiences of trauma. Created by Michele Vinbury and Marybeth Hamilton, yoga teachers with a longstanding commitment to bringing tools of personal transformation to underserved communities, it is designed to be implemented in recovery programs, yoga studios, prison reentry programs, and therapy centers.


EMBER lays the groundwork for learning healthy coping techniques while encouraging self acceptance and building community support.
