Sonia Ferencik
Ohio Domestic Violence Network

This is day designed for you! It's a time to pause and join other like minded advocates in activities of self-care while exploring concepts of vicarious trauma. Immerse yourself in a beautiful nature setting and practice mindfulness, yoga and drumming. With awareness and commitment, you will leave with a banner of loving kindness to display as a reminder to take great care of yourself while working on behalf of adult and child survivors. Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat or blanket. Everyone is welcome and you may modify any activities to suit your personal needs.
