About This Learning Event

Thank you, first responders, for creating hope for living well! As a debt of gratitude to this heroic community and to inspire your own healing work, 1440 Multiversity is hosting a series of complimentary Live Well Fridays for First Responders throughout 2023 that invites fire, law enforcement, EMS, and dispatcher personnel (and a guest) to participate in monthly learning opportunities designed to provide you with deep healing, nourishment, and energy in the redwoods.

Join 1440 and Circles International Founder Eliza Ramos on Friday, January 13 for our first featured workshop of the new year designed for first responders - this curated experience at our campus also includes a sustainable locally sourced lunch in Kitchen Table and a Sound meditation to help face the burnout and grief you experience each day. Workshops will vary each month and include Trauma, Stress & Resilience; Hope, Joy & Growth, Grief & Healing; and other topics to address first responder concerns such has PTSD, anxiety depression, fatigue, work-related stress, and more.

Live Well Fridays for First Responders is a 1440 philanthropic advocacy program inspired by our flagship Healing Our Healthcare Heroes and Healing Our Education Communities weekends. We are grateful for your service and look forward to hosting you this month - and in the future - as you discover new ways to Live, Lead, Love, Work and Wonder Well.
