Presenting this Healing Circle we pose the question, ‘What does healing look like for those who do the work?’
As nurturers, caregivers, educators, developers, gatekeepers of our youth communities, families and tribes, there is this ongoing conversation of ‘Healing’ but what is it? What does it look like for these individuals? How does one make the time, effort, and intention while supporting and maintaining others around them? Where and how can one find other women who look similar, actively participating in healing work, and are a tribe of resources and support?
Our goal is to curate a safe space of collective conversation, with the intention of offering the opportunity to grow, network, and build potential tribes with other healers.
This trip is in partnership with Venus Valette The Hood Hippie.
