Before meeting Angelica Zapata, I wondered what could be offered to my Spanish speaking community that could not be readily found in a book or a YouTube video around Mindfulness for Stress. I have been already aware of the research and best practices to support Latinx families facing the challenges of racism, financial issues, immigration and limited health care access. Mindfulness as well as meditation practices can seem intimidating and almost elusive. Angelica has a genuinely gentle, compassionate and judgement-free way of bringing people along no matter where they start. She successfully creates a safe, comfortable environment for the participants to experience individual and collective healing and manage everyday stresses to improve their health.
