This fully residential course includes the four-day Contemplative Based Resilience (CBR) training in the context of a restful and restorative winter retreat in Bern, Switzerland. These training retreats are uniquely tailored to humanitarians in the field and have been designed to provide the core support they need, including connection with other humanitarians, restoration within a peaceful environment close to nature and deepened understanding of how to more effectively cope with the impact of aid work.
The training retreat will be held at Landguet Ried, a beautiful retreat centre in Bern, Switzerland, which is easily accessible from Geneva. The venue is surrounded by forests and open fields, providing ample space for relaxation. Basic accommodation is provided, along with hearty and fresh vegetarian food.
The course covers the entire CBR curriculum, which is focused on the three themes of Awareness, Balance and Connection. The general themes and topics covered by the training include:
Plus 12 months of access to ongoing CBR support, via the CBR Mobile App and Monthly Support Circle calls.
Personal resilience training through CBR is crucial for anyone working in an insecure and chronically stressful humanitarian environments. This particular training retreat targets international aid workers who seek deep reflection and renewal during their R&R, annual leave or break between contracts.
