CMHC Events & Programs

Holistic Healing Through
Nature, Movement, and Connection.

At the heart of CMHC is a profound belief in the transformative power of holistic healing. We understand that the path to mental wellness is as diverse and individual as each one of us, intertwining mind, body, and nature. Our range of curated events and programs reflects this philosophy, offering a fusion of movement, nature immersion, and therapeutic connection.

From the meditative calm of yoga and the graceful flow of Taichi to the immersive solace of our nature retreats and the empowering camaraderie of our support groups, every offering is designed to nurture mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Our trauma, grief, and nature retreats delve deeper into specific healing paths, creating a sanctuary for those navigating life's more challenging terrains.

But it doesn't stop there. We're committed to ensuring that every individual, regardless of their financial circumstances, can access these transformative experiences. Our need-based scholarship initiative stands as a testament to this commitment, echoing our ethos that holistic healing should be within everyone's reach.

Dive in, explore, and discover the program or event that resonates with your healing journey.

I found the event most helpful.  The time spent with the leaders and attendees was comfortable and safe. All there were my teachers. And I was able to open my heart to my experiences and receive lessons learned from others.
