OARS in the Water
Hosted by Elisa Pearmain & Faye Mogensten
A ritual is something done repeatedly with a purpose outside of the action itself, and can help us to live our values and calm our minds. In this session of OARS we’ll explore how rituals enrich – or might enrich – our lives.
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:
We’ll gather via Zoom. Here is the NEW link:
