Soul Affirmation Cards With Jen

Create a personal ‘Heart and Soul’ affirmation card for the New Year! 

What are your hopes and dreams?  What is that one word or phrase that opens up your heart and gives hope to your soul? How is that word or phrase held in art form? Celebrate the closing of this year with Jen as they teach us how to create a personal heart and soul card of hope for the year to come.

Have you ever wanted to reclaim some fun at Christmas?? 

Dec 11-Come join us for a fun sing along Christmas kitchen band time (songs will not be of a religious nature). We will also be making a treat to munch on!! All of you are invited to come…bigs, littles, tweens, teens, everyone.

More details found on Eventbrite when you register.

Dec 24/25-Come for comfort, support and companionship at times when many of us struggle greatly.


These cozy corner drop in get togethers are a time for survivors to come together through zoom and connect with others like themselves, ending the isolation we so often live with. This can be a chance to have some “okayness” through difficult times like holidays that are challenging and lonely.



Come for a few moments or stay the whole time.

All parts welcomed!

creative healing h’arts workshop for survivors with did

Visions of HopeMaking vision boards together

As a survivor we are often reminded of, and triggered back into, our past. During this 3-hour art workshop, we are given the opportunity to look at ourselves in the present moment and think about what we want for our future. What are our hopes for the next month, the next year, or even the next 5 years. We will take time to explore our hearts’ desires and transform those desires into an art form called a vision board (I like to call them Visions of Hope). This is a video-on event. You may turn your video off during your writing and when you need to tend to other tasks, but during sharing, and in our opening and closing, videos are on.

No art experience necessary.
