Sitting with the Grief and Hope of this Moment

Speaker: Maria Broom

We will sit with the feelings and emotions that this unique moment in history brings up. We will explore both the needs we each have personally, as well the needs of our communities. This day will also lay a foundation to tap into our maternal superpowers through writing and creativity. We will leave our time together ready to take care of ourselves and eager to take care of the collective.

Taking Care of Ourselves: The Oxygen Mask

Speaker: M. M. De Voe

In the spirit of the airplane oxygen mask in which we're reminded to mask up before assisting others, this session is designed to provide a centering opportunity to create a space for us to tend to ourselves so that we can more effectively turn the care outwards. We'll begin with self-care from the lens of activism and inclusion to ensure that roots of our self-care create a better world for everyone.

Taking Care of the World

Speaker: Rebecca Walker

We have focused on personal centering practice, and today we will work to take that care outwards. We will explore what we care most about in our homes, our communities, and our world and we will tap into our own connectedness to the world outside ourselves.
