HSA: OARS in the Water







OARS in the Water a Free Event presented by Healing Story Alliance, Inc.

Wednesday, March 27 at 7:00 – 8:30 pm EDT

Online via Zoom

Hosted by Laura Simms & Jim Brule

Theme:  “Needed Monsters: The Heart of Transformation”

We gather via Zoom. Here is the Free Zoom Link:


When, in a story, monsters are not overcome but transformed, the doors to healing are opened. How can we build the flexibility of perception and strength of spirit to invite the monsters we need into our stories and our lives? Join Laura Simms and Jim Brulé as they invite us to explore the gifts that our monsters bring.

OARS in the Water is a facilitated Zoom gathering on the second and fourth Wednesday of the month offered by Healing Story Alliance to create a listening space to share the experiences and stories that have emerged through turbulent times. This is not a therapeutic circle but we do hope it will be healing, supportive and inspiring. Admission is free, although donations are deeply appreciated and help support our programming. Your tax-deductible donation can be made here: https://square.link/u/d9xbGN2I
