Rise Above Violence
In our continuing effort to bring alternative healing modalities to our Pagosa community, Rise Above Violence and PMAB + Movement are excited to introduce the Healing Circle topic for March, taking place on Thursday, March 23, from noon to 1 p.m. at the PMAB studio.
This month will be a workshop on tangle drawing — a relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing patterns. This form of art therapy can be very therapeutic.
These monthly Healing Circles have different topics every month — for April we will be exploring the healing properties of homeopathy — and these workshops are meant as a way to introduce people to alternative therapies in a safe, open environment. These workshops are free to attend and all are welcome.
Call at (970) 903-9278 and we will be happy to get your name in for this workshop.
Upcoming for Rise in the month of April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, the Push-Up Challenge and the Denim Day Walk. Watch for more information in the coming weeks.
