Bake & Remake: Corporate Wellness Program

The first-of-its-kind mental health and wellness program, Bake and Remake, inspired by Dayna Altman’s mental health memoir, Mix, Melt, Mend: Owing my Story & Finding my Freedom. Over six, 90-minute sessions, Dayna will be facilitating this group-oriented program designed to connect working professionals and youth from non-profit organizations. Cohorts will use Dayna’s memoir and supplemental workbook  to launch into a broader discussion which addresses mental health in the group setting. The goal is to allow participants to engage mindfully with their own truths (often uncomfortable) about their lived experiences in order to meditate on how those experiences have shaped who they are today. It is hoped with this program each participant will find motivation and discover a new found purpose to chase their actual goals and passions.
