Art of Healing: The Path Toward Equity and Internal Transformation Series

Sunday June 5

2:30 - 4:30 pm

 

 

“In a world that is rife with colonization, dehumanization, patriarchy, and injustice, healing brings transformation and the capability to radically imagine a world beyond these inequities.”

 

    - Assisi House Directors, Dr. Leslie Grover and Dr. Revathi (Reva) Hines

 

Join us for this transformative series built on the power of storytelling, healing and arts. Together we will examine the current world, explore our inner thoughts, and imagine a better future. We will unearth the biases and beliefs we subconsciously harbor and move toward healing by giving voice to our experiences. This creative process brings a sense of accompaniment, accomplishment and wellbeing to participants.

 

Session 1: The Power of Racial Healing

Through a series of story circles and healing arts methods we will peel back our own inner layers, become aware of our racial space and engage in collective racial healing. Poetry and story will lead us into dialogue about racial identity, race, and racism. Individual and group-based healing exercises will be followed by creating steps toward building a racially just world.

 

Facilitated by Dr. Leslie Grover and Dr. Reva Hines. Dr. Grover is the Founder of Assisi House. She's certified in Narrative Medicine, Art Healing, Community Storytelling, and Racial Healing.

Book Study

Care of The Soul

Mondays Weekly

Beginning June 6

noon -1:30 pm

 

Are you ready to look more deeply into your life and sense the sacred in ordinary things? Join as we begin exploring a remarkable book, Care of the Soul: A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life by psychotherapist, former monk and author Thomas Moore. In it, Moore uses archetypal psychology and mythology to examine the connections between spirituality and the issues facing individuals and society. While the message of this book regarding caring for yourself and your soul is straightforward, its implications might surprise you: you are a unique, complex individual and all aspects of that complexity must be allowed, even embraced, if you are to engage life with satisfying depth.
