We Heal Together: Body Wisdom and Everyday Self-Care Workshop Series for Black People w...

Starting on Monday, October 18, 2021, at 7:00 p.m., join Carleton University’s Sexual Assault Support Centre and Ryerson University’s Consent Comes First Office a for a virtual five-week workshop series for Black students!

In Black communities, the practice of remembering our ways to nourish ourselves and each other is central to our continued assertion of our liberation.

This five-week workshop series, facilitated by Dr. Jiselle Griffith N.D. for Black Ryerson University and Carleton University students, offers a deeper dive into the understanding of our health both through the challenges we navigate and the resilience we contain as Black people. Each workshop will focus on common health concerns in our communities.

Together we will learn about how stress and trauma can impact and turn on the signals of illness. We will explore how, through our habits, practices and self-care strategies, we can find resilience and restoration. In particular, we will discuss traditional ways that plant-based medicines, nourishment, embodiment, and mindfulness help us to heal.

Workshop topics include:

  • Showing Our Skin Hair and Nails Love on Monday, October 18, 2021, at 7:00 p.m.
  • Digest Well + Nourish Well on Monday, October 25, 2021, at 7:00 p.m.
