Breakout I: Grief, Loss and Letting Go
Grief is complicated, which means there is no right or wrong way to process it. What our bodies and mind's know is that loss is painful and the heart feels the laceration that comes from losing something or someone. This workshop is a safe and warming place for you to open up not only about death, but of having to let go and move on, and to discover tools on how to heal as you journey.
Breakout II: Breathe in, Breathe Out
In this group session we will explore the effects of depression and anxiety on the body and how being a strong woman of color is not a remedy for aiding depressive symptoms. In this session we will explore and dismantle the pressures, as well as the stereotypes that society has placed on women of color that impacts our abilities to heal. You will be in a safe place where you can use your voice and gain tools on how to breathe easy, without feeling suffocated by the need to live up to the standards that others, as well as people from our own culture, have placed upon us.
Breakout III: SELF-care for emotional resilience
This workshop is all about building your self-care toolbox. In this session we will focus on generating more self directed love by learning how to be honest with your emotions and using authenticity as a tool to build your self-esteem, your relationship with yourself, and most importantly, learn how to tend and nurture your spirit through creating self-care practices and rituals.
