AAPI Rising: Soul Care
December 15, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Community Medicine & Mindfulness Meditation
As part of our AAPI Rising series, we’d like to invite you to join VAYLA’s end-of-year community check-in. Our Executive Director, Jacqueline Thanh, MSW, will lead a meditation for us to turn our attention within. After another long year of complex grief across our diasporic community, we are holding space for our personal and collective wellness to guide mindfulness in an effort to find care and strength from one another.
Our AAPI Rising series is a storytelling, 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 Wednesday, December 8.
