Healing Justice Through Art and Meditaion
Our AWESOME project takes place at NOW Studios in Ann Arbor which is the home of the Express Your Yes Foundation. We are a non-profit group of artists, healers, performers, spiritualists, (and so many more) that are devoted to making the world a more beautiful and loving place. We focus mainly on LGBTQ+, POC, and marginalized communities- giving people a home where they can express themselves within an emotionally safe community.
We are starting a healing meditation series in mid January that will focus on self love, self acceptance, loving kindness, allyship, finding strength in pain, honoring our roots, etc.
This class will operate weekly and will be formatted as such: First the participants will come in and become acquainted with the space. There will be a half hour period for participants to enter, say hello to friends, ask questions, etc. After that, each week will focus on a new topic for a guided meditation lasting up to a half hour. Following this time, there will be an hour+ devoted to discussion of our topic and arts and journaling based on our personal and shared experience during the meditation and discussion,
Participants will come on an at-will donation basis. No one will be turned away.
