“By helping us to be present to our own experience, the skills taught by SILA enable us to recognize our emotions and teach us to manage them and to communicate in a way that facilitates effective and meaningful relationships with others.  I have found these skills to be helpful for all individuals and critical for those working in especially stressful environments, including first responders, frontline workers, and teachers , to help cope effectively with day to day challenges and  when the stress of life threatens to become overwhelming”
