As we reflect on the first anniversary of George Floyd’s tragic murder, how do we move forward when our minds, bodies, and souls are exhausted? Join experts and community healers as we gather to experience the healing benefits of a grounding meditation for breath,  body,  and heart through light, accessible body movement, music,  and ways to discover self-compassion.
