Pre-Conference Institute 2018


August 14, 2018

As service providers working to end violence against all our relations, many of us are in this work as it is our calling and we feel passionate about helping others in their time of need. Sometimes we are changed irrevocably by the things we see and hear---never taking the time to adequately care for ourselves and heal.

If we as service providers are to continue the important work that we do, it is imperative that we take time for ourselves, to care for our emotional, mental, spiritual, and physical self. At this year's Gathering for Healthy Relations conference, we have added a Pre-Conference Institute consisting of various workshops focused on healing specifically with service providers in mind!
