Healing Ourselves, Healing Our World
Capacitar’s mission is to heal ourselves and heal our world. We teach body-based practices that empower people to use their inner wisdom to heal and transform themselves to heal injustice and build peace in their families and communities. Capacitar is an international network of empowerment and solidarity connecting people across borders, ethnicities and beliefs. Our name “Capacitar” means to awaken, to encourage, to bring each other to life.
Emergency Kit, Wellness Bulletins, YouTube Videos
Capacitar has responded to global disasters developing a kit of basic practices for immediate use to help people deal with challenging situations. The kit has been translated into more than 30 languages and used around the world after tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, pandemics, in areas of ongoing conflict and for daily stress.
When we reach out beyond our own worlds and touch the lives of others, all of us are empowered. Together we form a community of compassion and service much greater than our individual selves. —Pat Cane, Capacitar Founder
We can’t do the work of social transformation without personal and community healing. Capacitar gives us significant tools to deal with compassion fatigue and to transform the culture of our organization so we can better serve our communities. —Rwanda Team
