Decolonizing Our Pain with Sierra Asamoa-Tutu

Wed., March 20, 2019 | 9-10:30 AM

As a healer, organizer, and Indigenous woman, Sierra Asamoa-Tutu believes that each of us has an inherent right to healing and wholeness in the world. For Kaleo Center’s next KaleoExpress, join Sierra for an interactive workshop that explores how our pain has been colonized in ways that rob all of us of our ability to cope with trauma, to heal well, and to be in authentic relationship with ourselves and one another.
