Drug War Survivors: Coping, Telling, Loving Ourselves

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The "War on Drugs" left a legacy of immeasurable harm that has yet to be fully documented. If you grew up with parents impacted by the war you may still be coping with the trauma. In this session, we will explore mindfulness, somatic practices, and creative writing to inhabit our woundedness, deepen compassion, and let go of survival mechanisms that no longer support our well being. Participants will explore how they have been impacted by the war and what it has meant for their families, communities, and ways of being in the world.
