Reclaim is a day-long retreat of healing workshops developed by people of color for people of color. This day will have 3 healing workshops:
RECLAIM your narrative: a workshop on the impact of trauma particularly for people of color and healing tools to move through the trauma. This will be facilitated by two social workers of color that are passionate about working with communities of color and have their own private practices in the Upstate community: Gordon Collier, LMSW, and Rachelle Pean, LCSW.
RECLAIM your language: a poetry workshop focusing on empowering ourselves using written and spoken poetry. These facilitators are 2 amazing published poets who have been featured poets in several poetry shows across the country: Karyn Dyer and Danielle Colin.
RECLAIM your presence: an acting workshop focused on embodying our personal power using the art of acting. Aaron Moore will be facilitating this workshop and bringing his unique skill set that he's developed from being an actor in programming at the Capital Rep theatre, Proctors, Youth FX, and more.
Food will be provided (vegetarian options available) and there will be sliding scale fee healing treatments available throughout the day (Reiki energy healing, massage, and gentle yoga).
