The purpose of this event is to use sound as a vibrational energetic healing force that can respond to psychic pain and ofter a place for respite. This is open to BIPOC ONLY (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) and will be held at the site of the Africville Church. We will be providing energy work and massage therapy free of charge. Participants are encouraged to bring their own pillows, blankets, yoga mats, etc. however we will have a limited amount available. We are accepting registration for up-to 20 BIPOC participants, which can be done by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please consider that space is limited when registering, and that our intention is to hold space for people who are Indigenous and/or of the African diaspora.
