À propos de ce groupe
"I can't breathe." --Eric Garner
This group is for afro-descendants, post colonials, POCs*.
We are living in times that are hard to understand and the weight of the concerns is suffocating.
Pain, distrust, fear, doubt grow in the seedbed of micro-agressions and invalidating circumstances which some are exposed to daily, in the media, on the street, at work or in social spaces.
Alternating between despair and rage, I have found professionally and personally, that one of the greatest resources for self care has been improving my creative relationship with Nature.
If you are a Black/POC urban professional interested in holistic wellness, looking for ways to manage, channel or harness reactivity, ressentment, stress, and anxiety, this meetup might be for you.
I am a trained and certified Horticultural Therapist and clinician with a background at NYU Langone Hospital in NYC.
I also hold a diploma in Art Therapy from the University of Paris faculté de Médecine Descartes/Hopitale Sainte Anne.
Relying on a Nature based Art therapy approach for improved well being, I offer culturally responsive workshops, a safe space for adressing your specific stressors. Our time together will be spent learning to pay attention to self in order to improve your capacity for response.
And I insist, this group is primarily for those who have to deal daily with being "Othered".
