None of us alone have the knowledge, experience and resources to end centuries of racism or heal the pain and trauma that has resulted from the hate, prejudice and white privilege woven through our governmental and societal structures. It is going to take all of us speaking out, listening up, advocating, creating and joining together to pave a future that closes the racial divide and heals the wounds of oppression.
We presented a two-part series entitled "All of Us. Together.” in order to learn about the origins of systemic racism and steps that can be taken to advocate for change.

Our team of practitioners has created a free series of conversational and educational webinars to help you and those around you through this stressful time and return to what feels better. We understand that during this difficult time, our individual and collective resilience may be challenged, leading to increased anxiety, depression, chronic pain or other symptoms. Our brains and bodies are designed to manage stress and even trauma and be able to recover and heal if given adequate support. We will be offering education about how stress and trauma impact our mind, body, and heart, and how to heal them. We hope you’ll watch these webinars and share these resources with others.
