Teacher: Nico Cary is a graduate of InsightLA’s Facilitator Training program, and a founding member of the arts education collective, iLL-Literacy. Back in 2009, he codeveloped the curriculum for CampusBuiLLd – a program that focuses on the history of social movements and how art and creativity can be used to address discrimination on college campuses and in local communities.
Turning more of his attention to deepening practice over the last couple of years, Nico is interested in the many different vocabularies of healing and the holding capacity of mindfulness particularly as relates to activism and social justice work.
