1:45-3 pm: Healing Our Queer Spirits
“Many of us navigate complex realities as we walk in our queer bodies of color. Through a variety of activities, this workshop will provide a space in the conference to have a healing circle. I hope that you leave with tools that can help you either begin or continue healing wounds of the body or metaphysical layers of your self. Topics that will be covered: language as a manifestation of reality, healing memory of trauma, generational poverty/poverty mentality, and the power of vision boarding ~ dream healing. Led by Bere”
