October 2018 Show

How do we show up for ourselves? What is self-care for us? In this world that is filled with violence and hate, what does it mean to survive and thrive?

So many questions leading to many more, but a definite answer is the power of community, coming together as women of colour, holding space for each other, and supporting each other’s soul
Thank you for last night, it was so lovely with our amazing guests, Ornella, Elena, and Maria!
