Living in the modern World as QTI – BIPoC individuals have its toll on all of us, mentally & Physically.
The need to slow down and check with the self about what is going on inside of us and around us and how it is affecting us
on many levels is a step into healing. Adding to that the Pandemic situation which is affecting us differently according to
our socio-economic status.
Either it’s: Anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, all sorts of disorders, all subtle & clear phobias and fears, lifestyle problems or relationship difficulties. This includes the tricky everyday trademarks of our time – loneliness, having a sense of purpose, feelings
of belonging, and being of use to society and loved ones. It reduces the quality of life!
Through the combination of a few methods of breathing techniques, sharing stories & co – existing.
The intention of the workshop is finding ways for healing. We come together in this workshop to offer help with a variety
of common ails and troubles.
