Healing Justice in the University
Universities across the globe are being called to invest in the mental, emotional, and holistic health of their students, staff, and communities by creating cultures that value and prioritize wellness through a lens of decolonization, anti-racism and social justice. I have long witnessed the burnout, stress and anxiety, and toxicity of cultures of harm that university students experience on campus and in their academic learning environments. Universities can serve as a beacon for transforming our cultures of care on campus, by training students in yoga and mindfulness-based skills and practices through a decolonial, anti-racist, and healing justice lens. Wellness practices that are rooted in trauma-informed care, an ethics of social justice, and a commitment to ensuring wellness for all have the power to help college students address critical issues of attrition, depression, mental and emotional anxiety.
