As apart of my art practice I've begun to prioritize rest inspired by the Rest Is Resistance: A Manifesto by Tricia Hersey. In doing so I am able to dream and create art. If I can not dream. I can not create. I've participated in a few healing BIPOC circles and retreats, which have been really fulfilling and beneficial to my mental well-being. I am hoping to attend Colectiva Wellness's 2024 Self-Love + Healing in Borikén (Puerto Rico). The retreat will take place from February 1 through February 5 and includes airport transportation, accommodations at Finca Monte de Sol, three daily meals, a day trip to Salto Collazo Waterfalls and Playa Jobos in Isabela, along with healing ceremonies, water purification rituals, inner child healing, fire ceremonies, yoga nidra, healing movement, and more!

The cost to attend is out of my budget, and I would love any support to help attend. Any size donation counts!

Thank you for your time and support!
