A night for women

  • Feb. 3, 2014 8:00 a.m.

Submitted by Sandra Dan–“My Walk to Healing” is a women’s group that began in November 2013, and is a partnership between the Haida Gwaii Society for Community Peace, the Haida Health Centre, and OMVC Social Development. It was developed as a means to foster relationships and connections among women.The group has been meeting every Wednesday evening at the Wellness House (across from the library in Masset). While this is not a therapy group, it is a safe place to gather and to share our experiences, life lessons and to address issues like boundaries, communication, healthy relationships, the impact of trauma on our bodies and in our lives. We invite guest facilitators and add creative activities such as making moccasins. Women who wish to attend the Wednesday evening sessions must call Rachel Lavrisa. On Wednesday February 12, our group will get a special treat: A Night for Women, to pamper ourselves and socialize with other jaadas, women, señoritas, mademoiselles, life givers! Foot care, manicures, mini-massages, meditation, Valentine card-making are on the agenda so far. We are opening this night up to women who have not yet attended our group, and who have a commitment to healing and connecting with others. Ladies! please RSVP for this night by calling Rachel at 260-626-6052.
