Take a Breath: Creative Solutions for Complex Lives
The amount and pace of change we experience these days can be somewhat overwhelming. Personal, work, emotional, and change stressors all contribute along with competing priorities. Just as soon as you get dialed into one area, another one is clamoring for your attention. We are bombarded all day with communication, technology demands, emotions, and opinions—it can seem like there is little time to form your own thoughts. Feeling your blood pressure rising yet? All the more reason to step away and Take a Breath.

In the second half of the program, Sue will be joined by Ember Beamon-Guerra, a child trauma survivor and former Mount Saint Vincent resident. Through a relaxed, conversational format, the speakers will discuss ways for people to manage stress, create meaningful experiences, and use social connections to bring richness to their lives. An interactive question-and-answer session with the audience will follow.
A former resident of Mount Saint Vincent, Ember suffered through years of horrific emotional, physical, and sexual abuse. Through clinical treatment and nurturing care, the staff at Mount Saint Vincent helped Ember realize that her dreams were within her grasp, and she ultimately obtained a B.S. in criminology and criminal justice from Metropolitan State University.
Since graduating, Ember has sat on the board of Colorado’s State Office of the Child’s Representative; served as co-chair for the Celebration of Excellence, which honors students in foster care who graduate from high school; and recently served on Colorado’s Foster Care Permanency and Reform Task Force. Now a wife and mother of two children, Ember overcame adversity to ultimately find peace and happiness in her life.
