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.

Questions we’ll explore through this session:
How did we get here?
What do I need from this moment?
What does my community and the world need from me at this moment?
Where do we go from here?
