Healing For Our Ancestors, Our Selves, and Our Children
Healing Curation is a set of unique supportive offerings for activist groups. This collection of healing justice rooted offerings is a culmination of all that we've seen, learned, and are increasingly doing, structured with lots of intention and love.
We came together, as politically-engaged healers of color, based on the belief that spaces where people gather to vision, strategize, and build relationships could be more impactful.
Over the years, we have seen the ways in which minimizing our need for healing makes realizing our mission so much harder. We have understood that when healing is integrated with--and not separate from--our change-making work, transformation is much more possible. And we have been humbled as more and more organizers invite us into their spaces, and we co-create together.
