Why Go: Calling all sisters to come out, heal, shine and play! What a wonderful gift the Spring brings to all of us! It is the time that allows us to give birth to ourselves and each other annually. This year, join us for a special Spring Equinox Healing Circle, as we shed the last days of winter (and feelings associated with any traumas related to sexual violence) and the last minute fears that are creeping in before our rebirth. Join us in releasing through the healing waters of Yemaya and the primordial life forces of Mother Earth as we address, confront and deal with past trauma and embrace the newness of our future in a sacred circle of light and sisterhood.
