OARS in the Water




OARS in the Water: Looking Back to Go Forward hosted by Mike Seliger and Barbara Aliprantis

Wednesday, December 27th at 7-8:30 pm EST – Online

As the calendar turns from a tumultuous 2023 to the uncertainty of a new year, wisdom found in past experiences and stories can be helpful as we look ahead. Barbara and Mike, two old friends, will reflect on past moments that enabled them to move forward with love, hope and humor, inviting participants to share at this special time…

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. Please join us! 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
