Restoring Ourselves 
Monday and Tuesday,
September 13-14, 2021
12:00 pm- 4:00 pm & 9:00 am- 4:00 pm

A convening for program advocates to come together in person to explore the lessons, gifts and grief of this moment and engage in restorative healing practices that they can use for themselves and to create healing spaces for survivors. 

Since March of 2020 we have been on a collective journey of deep change, which at times has felt overwhelming. But what we know about change is that it is also a fertile time, allowing us to heal, practice our unique wholeness and build collective and personal resiliency. You are invited to join us for Restoring Ourselves, where we will gather to explore the lessons, gifts, and grief of this moment and engage in restorative healing practices, both for ourselves and to learn practices to engage in with survivors.  We will learn deep listening tools, healing storytelling, journal writing techniques, and explore the healing power of community. Together we can transform our grief into medicine for change. We look forward to sharing these practices with you!
