Healing Ourselves, Healing the World

Storytelling Workshop with Aurora Levins Morales

We're excited to invite you to "Healing Ourselves, Healing the World: A Weekend of Stories for Liberation with Aurora Levins Morales"!

Aurora will facilitate two sessions -- a poetry reading on 3/24, and a participatory workshop on 3/25 -- to explore how individual and collective stories can be used to promote healing for the individual, community and the world at large.

Aurora Levins Morales is a prolific artist, historian and activist whose work incorporates the intersections of Latinx feminism, ecology, disability justice, and her own Puerto Rican Jewish identity. In addition to publishing over five books of poetry/creative writing, she has served as an Elder-in-Residence for Jews for Racial and Economic Justice (JFREJ), and her work has become ubiquitous in the world of Jewish social justice and spirituality.
