Healing Justice

Holistic Self-Care for Change Makers

Loretta Pyles

  • Draws from the practices of yoga, mindfulness and Ayurveda to offer a holistic, mind-body, or contemplative approach to self-care.
  • Frames healing justice within the context of contemporary social movements including transformative social practice.
  • Offers specific skills, practices, and inquiries to help human service professionals and change makers to put the paradigm of healing justice into practice.
  • Uses case studies of practitioners and organizations interacting with healing justice modalities.
  • Goes beyond the individualistic and solipsistic ideas of self-care that are circulating today and instead offers a more expansive view of the self, one that includes the body, mind, spirit, community, and natural world.
  • Offers critical engagement with the existing evidence-base as well as critique of the commodification of self-care and inquiry into cultural appropriation.
