 About Marnita’s Table:

At Marnita’s Table, we seek to close gaps across difference through making Intentional Social Interaction the new pattern for society where Indigenous, people of color, the disenfranchised, the poor, the unheard, the fragile, the LGBTQ+ and anyone who is normally left out of community decision making are automatically included and valued at the policy-making and resource-sharing table. Experts at social capital building, we’ve welcomed over 63,000 people from around the world and the around the way to find common ground while breaking bread – in person or online, we bring people together to create meaningful change and more equitable systems. Find out more at www.marnitastable.org.

About Healing from Trauma:

The Marnita’s Table model of Intentional Social Interaction is an inclusive forum to exchange ideas and build relationships across age, ethnicity and other means of self-identity in order to catalyze positive action toward building community resilience.

Originally designed and developed in 2015 through collaborative and participatory input in partnership with the Catalyst Initiative, this dialogue series, focuses on the emergent, community-driven development of actionable ideas about how to improve health outcomes and opportunities to explore the latest research on mind/body techniques in a collaborative and collegial environment.

With so many members of our communities currently grappling with historic and secondary trauma, this event is a timely prevention and healing strategy that recognizes the need for healing in the context of communal support and collaboration. In our work across the state, Healing from Trauma emerges as our most-requested dialogue, so to deepen and expand the experience, we have added new practitioners and sessions to speak to the needs emerging directly from community members.

Healing from Trauma recognizes that healing and building resilience in any community requires many community members who willingly work together at all levels of decision-making impact.

We look forward to welcoming you. If you have any questions you may call Marnita’s Table at 612.928.7744.
