Manuals and Resources

Responding to needs in different communities, Capacitar has developed a variety of manuals in body-mind-spirit practices and theory for grassroots people and professionals. To make the materials understandable to different cultures and regions, photos are frequently used and some manuals have been translated into Spanish, French, Haitian Creole, Setswana, Kinyarwandan, Indonesian, Tetum (East Timor) and Swahili.

Manuals have been researched and developed by Patricia Mathes Cane, Ph.D., Capacitar Founder/Director, in collaboration with grassroots people in different countries.


Emergency Kit

logoIn 2005, we responded to Hurricane Katrina by putting together this kit of simple basic practices for immediate use to help people deal with challenging situations, such as natural disasters, violence or chronic stress. Since then it has been translated into more than 20 languages and used in countries after tsunamis, earthquakes, floods and areas of ongoing conflict. Click here to download.
