What are participants saying?

  • "I felt a sense of empowerment. I did not feel bigger or better, but I felt great about myself. It also is a great non-verbal communication tool."
  • "When I'm upset I take a minute to breathe."
  • “I don’t know if this sounds weird, but I felt like the ground was shaking beneath me and I realized that I had always thought my power came from the ability to strike. I just realized that my power can come from my resolve and my resilience.”
  • "I think that for me personally, it has really helped me become more assertive without being overbearing. I have noticed that I have become increasingly more adaptable to situations that I dislike or feel anxious in."
  • "I felt less invisible." "I felt like people saw me as less threatening." "I felt more like I could go with the flow."
More about Sarete

Sarete is a program of interactive practices, focusing on “practicing being better in conflict.”

Working on breathing, posture, and movement in the context of interaction explores what happens when our energy is directed towards possibility instead of opposition. Conflict is often the challenges we face in daily life, the crisis we are responsible for managing, or unresolved experiences in our past.

Programs are directed towards students for whom the outcomes of those daily conflicts have significant future consequences, for veterans, educators, and law enforcement for whom the outcomes of those crises have significant impacts on their ability to provide safe communities, and towards individuals with a history of violence or trauma facing the same daily conflicts while working toward healing and personal growth.

Sarete is a 501(c)3 nonprofit to ensure that everyone has access to practice as a resource for growth, renewal, and lasting change.  In addition to supporting lasting change, all contributions are tax deductible; please support Sarete today.
