OARS in the Water: Courage






United States



OARS in the Water: Courage

July 12th  7:00pm-8:30pm EDT

Hosted by Noa Baum and Regi Carpenter

Presented by: HSA

Courage is the ability to do something that frightens us, or to display strength in the face of pain or grief. Join us to explore stories of courage and fear in our lives, our work and our communities.

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:
