March 6: Healing Hearts Explores Restorative Wellness Through All of Our Relations

Indigenous peoples make up about 5% of the world’s population, yet they protect 80% of the world’s biodiversity.

Indigenous peoples around the Earth deeply understand the interwoven relationships between all beings. Indigenous Elders often speak of the individual and collective responsibility we all have to be in a healthy and reciprocal relationship with the Earth along with the importance of self care.  This is more important now than any time in history.

In this webinar, Carolynne Crawley will focus upon restorative wellness through plants and relationship with Mother Earth from an anticolonial and intersectional lens. She will share Indigenous perspectives that support her well being to build responsible and reciprocal relations with the lands, waters, and all beings.

This session is a part of our regular Healing Hearts Survivor Group. Healing Hearts is a virtual, drop-in group for survivors of all genders that meets monthly from 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET.
