We are excited to announce a new initiative for 2021! Women Healing Women Healing Earth in person, small group workshops. Preregistration required (see below). Half the spots in each reserved for low/moderate income women who live in the North Quabbin region who want to enhance wellbeing, learn skills that promote resilience and happiness, and who would benefit from time with a supportive, diverse group of women in a relaxing outdoor setting. Women in neighboring communities and counties are welcome to reach out! We are committed to creating program groups that are diverse in regards to culture and race, age, and life experience. Offered free of charge to low/moderate income women. Donations always welcome and never required.
