Free Workshop for black and African American Women journeying with Cancer
"Love Letters to Our Bodies" is a free deeply healing workshop for African American and women from the African diaspora who are cancer patients or cancer survivors. This free contemplative workshop will explore themes related to how these women experience their bodies, stories they tell themselves, how that has changed since their diagnosis, and how they engage in self-care.
“We all carry stories in our bodies,” said Gwendolyn Mitchell, Reiki Master and Chief Executive Officer of Moyo Institute, Inc., who will facilitate the workshop. “But seldom do we make the connection between these stories and our overall wellbeing. This is particularly true for African Americans who are carrying both generational and personal trauma,” Mitchell continued. “In Love Letters, we gently unpack these stories so participants can move forward in their journey unburdened.”
The workshop will be online April 29 & 30, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Pacific / 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., Eastern. To register, go to https://bit.ly/LoveLettersApr2023.
In addition to exploring these themes, women will share their stories, learn hand postures to bring more energy into the body, help the body assimilate medication, release fear and anxiety.
“At Charlotte Maxwell Clinic, we provide low-income women with cancer the opportunity for improved health outcomes and quality of life by providing free access to compassionate, integrative care, said Melbra Watts, Executive Director. “Moyo Institute’s Love Letters to Our Bodiesworkshop gives our clients a supportive experience of the mind/body connection and compassionate relief from the day-to-day strain of dealing with cancer.
