Tiara Cash is a creator of brave spaces. In her equitable mindfulness gatherings, she invites participants to show up just as they are. She uses her mindfulness practice and her passion for equitable wellbeing to cultivate a space of respect, vulnerability and courage. What I love most about the space that she creates is that she does not control it or create a rigid agenda for specific lessons. Instead, she allows people to show up just as they are and allows discussion and perspectives to enter the space naturally. She holds space for what is and helps folks navigate what is present. In these spaces everyone is the teacher and the student, and what comes up connects us deeply to ourselves and others.
Tiara creates a safe place. Not only does she set the tone for self-examination, comfort, and healing, she merges strength and relatability to those around her. Her interactions with our student-athletes allowed them to safely introspect in mediums that they had probably never felt solace or acceptance within. Tiara is always organized, innovative, adaptable, and open. She brings reassurance and positive views to the tasks at hand. It was a pleasure to see her be a refuge and help integrate a place of personal preservation into our student athletes. She gave them tools they can use throughout their lives.
I have been to several Equitable Mindfulness sessions on diverse topics such as trauma, general mindfulness, and othering and belonging. I’ve enjoyed the rituals at the beginning, the grounding work that happens, the creation of a safe space through verbal agreement of conversation boundaries, the way silence and discussion are embraced equally, the non-judgmental and welcoming atmosphere (sitting in a circle, coffee available, friendly hellos and goodbyes), and the way delicate topics find their ways into our individual and group healing.
Tiara gave a mindfulness presentation to my colleagues and I this month and it was amazing. This was an opportunity for us to decompress, as we are constantly on the go even working from home. Tiara was patient and answered any questions that we had about mindfulness. I’d definitely attend another session with her.
Tiara Cash’s equitable mindfulness gatherings have been such a powerful source of insight, growth, and togetherness. I look forward to these gatherings, as each one invites participants to dive deeply into conservations that society at large tends to forgo. The space Cash creates is one where both introspection and community connection are alive. The topics are challenging but needed, for the purpose of growth. I am grateful for all I have learned and experienced about myself and my community in through these gatherings.
Tiara Cash’s presentation on Equitable Mindfulness is one that everyone can benefit from. Mindfulness is not only helpful in the workplace, but vital in the everyday world. Ms. Cash ensures that her audience is gifted with tools and guidance on how to be more present in the moment and handle the rollercoaster of life with grace. The tools and tips that she has shared, has greatly improved my life and how I manage and deal with stress in the workplace and in the world. The tools that she is providing are invaluable and should be shared with all.
