Creatives of Color Oregon (COCO): Sound Bath & Quarantine Check-In
March 18 at 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
OMPA invites the BIPoC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community to join us for an evening of self-care and reflection as we approach one year of coping with the pandemic. Join us via Zoom on Thursday, March 18, from 3-5pm PT.
We will begin with a space for discussion to talk about how we’ve survived, share tactics and resources for maintaining our mental health and general well-being while building community.
The last 30 minutes of the meeting will feature a sound bath led by the amazing Yaara Valey, providing us a moment of self-care to relax and decompress.
RSVP for a limited number of spaces.
Note: COCO is an event by and for communities of color.
