Let's be honest. 2020 was rough. Whether it be a specific event or the impact of the entire year, many of us continue to carry the burden of things that need to be let go.
Many of us are moving throughout our days in survival mode. This can make it near impossible to connect to ourselves, to do the inventory of what needs to change or be released, or to vision BEYOND survival. Visioning beyond survival is crucial for us to call in that which leaves us nourished & thriving.
Lucky for us, harnessing the power of communal energy can make all the difference! There is tangible inspiration and momentum to do this work when we are surrounded by others devoted to doing the same.
Join us for a gathering devoted to writing, sharing & listening.
ABOUT THE FACILITATORS
Samantha Verdugo (she/her) is a senior at Hunter College studying Sociology and Public Health, and an intern at Birth Bruja. She's deeply interested in becoming a life-long healer and therapist that centers holistic healing, culturally sensitive therapy, and decolonial practices. Samantha sees myself doing this kind of work with children and adults of all ages.
Eri Guajardo Johnson (she/they) is a bi-racial, Midwest-born birthworker, rape crisis peer counselor, birth consultant for trauma survivors, community educator, and host of Birth Bruja. Drawing upon their 13+ years of experience supporting survivors of sexual assault, studying indigenous Mexican and Indian healing modalities, and obtaining her masters in Women, Gender, Spirituality & Social Justice from the California Institute of Integral Studies- she approaches healing & justice work as a mechanism for individual and collective liberation.
The Birth Bruja platform is a manifestation of Eri’s passion for birth work as a spiritual, liberational & decolonial practice. Join us for monthly Mentorship Circles, free resources, and Community Workshops that span the full range of this transformative work.
