Queering Wellness: A Healing Series!

Spark Reproductive Justice NOW! and Osatyam present Queering Wellness: A Healing Series.

Is the winter weather putting you in a funk? Is legislate session giving you anxiety? If so, join us in our first session of the Queering Wellness Series, titled “Pranayama.”

Queering Wellness is a series focused on transmuting oppression-based trauma for queer folks in Atlanta through a series of whole self-nurturing practices. The series consists of 3 sessions, each building upon the skills of the last to guide folks in tailoring a more complete personal wellness practice.

Pranayama, or life force, is the conscious awareness of the breath.

This opening session is comprised of conversation, ritual, and food. We kick off our series by connecting breath control, autonomy, and each individual’s personal power.

**Queer and Trans folx will be prioritized at this event, but all are welcome**

Queering Wellness is a series! Stay tuned into SPARK and Osatyam for more information about the rest of our sessions!
