HSA: OARS in the Water






United States

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

Wednesday, April 10th at 7:00-8:30 pm EDT online via Zoom

Hosted by Kristin Pedemonti and Robin Reichert

Theme: “Joy in Challenging Times”

We’ll gather via Zoom. Here is the Zoom Link:


What place does joy have in challenging times? How might joy help to sustain us?  We invite you to consider the many ways joy has been and can be effectively utilized to connect us and revitalize us when we feel depleted. Joy can be contagious in a good way.

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
