Reconnecting to our Elder’s Medicine: Fostering Joy in Healing

March 18 @ 9:00 am 10:30 am MDT

After days of exploring how we are shifting/striving/thriving through various aspects of our lives, end Women’s Week with a day of rejuvenation, self-love, and well-being. Join us as we explore self-care practices that foster joy in healing and are rooted in the traditional knowledge and wisdom of our elders. Community members will engage in dialogue, written reflections, and mindfulness exercises to engage their own ancestral knowledge and wisdom. This is an invitation to create a collective healing experience that is culturally-grounded and centers folx of color.
