Who Heals the Healer: the convergence
"For those who feel too much, may you guard your position as holy."
As tensions rise, so has the need for more healers. The waymakers, the agents of change, the ones armed with compassion.
But how many folks who step into this work have become burnt out or hurt along the way? What kind of long-term impact can we have if we don’t share the same healing methods we give to others with ourselves? How can we be a support system for others without depleting ourselves? How can we develop tools to thrive as opposed to just surviving? Who heals the healer?
A large scale conference of the event series, the intention of the convergence is to cultivate an ecosystem rooted in community care for wellness, social justice and healing practitioners who can hold space for one another as they continue to hold space for community. The curated techniques and solutions from this series will be shared widely in the form of a publication in 2018.
This is space is open to anyone who considers themselves to be a healer, but will center the experiences of BIPOC, WOC and QTPOC folks. If you are a co-conspirator/ally, please be mindful of this.
Multiple expressions of healers are welcome, including and not excluding; birthworkers, parents, youth workers, curators, teachers, nurses, doctors, diviners, social workers, artists, witches, energy workers, empaths, organizers, creatives, movement workers, yogis, musicians, djs, reiki practitioners, herbalists, farmers, the strong friend; and any role that calls upon someone to constantly hold space for others.
