Join the IIYC SoCal Chapter for Mi Vida Su Vida

Mi Vida Su Vida is a workshop, which provides attendees a chance to dive into the depths of their inner being. Attendees will experience an immersive, hands on workshop where they will confront what it means to challenge historic and intergenerational trauma in order to heal and evolve. Participants will learn various healing techniques that they can use to heal one’s self and practice self-love, with the ultimate goal of using these practices to cultivating a deeply connected relationship with themselves, others and the planet.

The IIYC believes that as young people, if we are to lead in our communities, we must ensure we are developing our leadership skills from a strong foundation. This begins with education around mental, physical and spiritual health. 

In Mi Vida Su Vida you will learn about:

  • Dynamic Systems Theory

  • Physics of the Soul

  • The importance of water

  • Conocimiento

  • Historic & intergenerational trauma and healing

  • Food as medicine

  • Sexual health & identity

  • Drug use, abuse & dependency

  • Leadership development
