HSA: OARS in the Water






OARS in the Water

February 28th at 7:00pm-8:30pm EST

 Hosted by Sara DeBeer & Anabelle Castaño

Theme: Interpersonal Translations

Even if people engaged in a conversation speak the same language, there are nuances that might get “lost in translation”. Tonight will be an opportunity to reflect on how we can really listen so that the conversation is a bridge and not a barrier.

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:
