AAPI Rising: Soul Care

February 2, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm


As part of our AAPI Rising series, we’d like to invite you to join VAYLA’s second Soul Care event! Our Deputy Director, Anthony Johnson, Esq. will lead a meditation focused on guiding our attention within. As we enter the Year of the Tiger, we aim to hold space for our personal and collective wellness through intentional meditation. In this Soul Care session, we will use this space to exercise being in and aware of our bodies through guided somatic mindfulness techniques.

Our AAPI Rising series is a storytelling and workshop initiative born in the midst of the pandemic and heightened anti-Asian hate. Through our shared stories and community, we aim to humanize Asian Americans and find commonality in our experiences as we explore questions of identity, place, and empowerment. #AAPIRising continues today by leaning on our community, supporting one another, and taking care of ourselves through spaces such as these.

We hope to see you there! First-generation, 1.5s, and second-generation youth are encouraged to participate. We have limited spots available — please register by Tuesday, February 1st.
