Refund and Event Policies

Let’s join together to meditate and talk about supporting the people in our lives (including ourselves) who may struggle with hopelessness, helplessness, or suicide in these difficult times.

We will discuss – and experience – the importance of connection, community, and compassion.

If you are considering giving up or if you know someone who might be at risk for suicide, please call 800-273-TALK (8255) and visit:

The need for physical distancing leaves many of us isolated and in distress. This is a chance to sit together virtually, dialogue about this important topic, and connect.

“The opposite of suicide is not merely to remain alive. The opposite of suicide is connection.” 

Join us once a month on a Saturday from 12:30-2pm PT

March 20th: with Brian Stefan 

This month Brian will share teachings on Trauma, Suicidal Ideation, and Mindfulness Practice. 

In honor of Social Work Month 2021, Brian will put on his clinical social worker “hat” and share reflections, lessons, and stories about these important topics.  

Brian Stefan (ACSW) is a clinician in private practice, as well as a proud member of the Didi Hirsch Suicide Prevention Center as a supervisor and crisis counselor. He volunteers at the Los Angeles Mayor’s Office Crisis Response Team as a field responder and on-call manager. He consults and conducts training events for non-profit agencies, mental health organizations, schools, and law enforcement/government audiences. Brian is a former Department of Defense intelligence officer and FBI-LAPD intelligence analyst who dedicates his life post government service to suicide awareness, prevention, bereavement, grief/traumatic grief counseling, and stigma reduction.
