Led by highly experienced psychosocial, meditation and mindful movement practitioners, including New York Times Bestselling author and renowned meditation teacher, Sharon Salzburg.

The Contemplative Based Resilience (CBR) training programme has been specifically designed to help humanitarian aid workers cope better with the stress involved in working in protracted humanitarian emergencies. Our objective is to improve the quality of services delivered to beneficiary populations by building the mental strength and resilience of aid workers involved in the response. 

 The CBR Project is working to create a future in which humanitarian aid professionals receive the compassion inherent to their sector and are supported in their work by more resilient staff and organisations. This is achieved through our targeted training programmes, which are designed to:

  • Provide aid workers with practical tools for stress management supporting their increased resilience.

  •  Support individuals, managers and organisations to open up a necessary conversation about warnings signs and best-practice approaches to dealing with mental health, stress, PTSD and burnout.

Scientific, Secular Approach Using Best Practice

The Contemplative-Based Resilience (CBR) Project curriculum was designed by experts in trauma, psychologists from Doctors Without Borders, and world-renowned teachers of mindfulness, meditation and physical exercises of breathing and stretching.

Psychological stress is widely recognised as a major contributor to absenteeism, high staff turnover, poor morale and reduced productivity at work. Stress has also been shown to significantly impair memory and the ability to learn.

 The CBR Project approach is based on the enormous body of medical evidence showing that mindfulness, meditation and yoga help to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression as well as improve stress-management, self-awareness, creative thinking and concentration. The CBR Project training is entirely secular with no religious component, and is therefore open to all.
