This past week at La Posada, we welcomed Casa de Paz SLV, a non-profit organization based out of Crestone, Colorado, dedicated to providing holistic trauma support for asylum seekers and migrants. They also have a local team in the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) that coordinates programs via their RGV Board co-chair, a University of Texas - RGV professor, specializing in working with marginalized communities. For La Posada’s visit, two team members traveled to La Posada from Colorado. Joining them was an art therapist from New York City and a narrative play therapist from Chicago.
The event opened with trauma-informed yoga, art, and storytelling—the activities, centered around relaxation and restoration. The healing yoga was an ultimate favorite for even our shelter dog, Brownie, who joined in. Having this time to decompress and unwind was a welcome treat for all.
Thank you to Casa de Paz, SLV, for thinking about La Posada, our guests, and helping restore our overall well-being.
