OARS in the Water

Wednesday, July 26th
7:00 – 8:30 pm EDT – Online
Hosted by: Heather Forest & Sara deBeer
Theme: Mentors & Muses

Our life’s journey contains many unexpected twists and turns. Fortunately, we do not walk alone. Join us as we explore and appreciate those mentors and muses who have been our guiding lights and inspirations

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. We’ll gather via Zoom – see link below.

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
