The second group of this mini-series happens this Wednesday!
Couldn't make it to the first session but interested in joining us this week? Great! We'd love to have you!
About this series:
March is the month of the spring equinox when we shift from increased darkness to increased light.
Join Julie Birns, psychiatric nurse practitioner, spiritual seeker, and heart-centered guide, for this mini-series where we will meet once before the equinox and once after to connect with, explore, and move through the darkness to align ourselves with this external shift into the light.
This circle creates a safe space for sharing and/or listening and is open to people who currently are experiencing darkness or who can relate to having felt deep depression or despair at any point in their life.
This group is based on the Alternatives to Suicide peer support movement founded by the Western Massachusetts Recovery Learning Community (WMRLC). From the WMRLC website, “…As a community we have found strength in coming together to talk about many 'taboo' topics and to support one another in our times of greatest distress. Our collective wisdom and individual stories have taught us that the space to come together in this way can be powerful and healing.”
In addition to being a psychiatric nurse practitioner, Julie is a certified peer specialist and a trained Alternatives to Suicide group facilitator. These groups played an important role in Julie’s own journey and she is excited to bring this wisdom to Tucson.
Powerful experiences result from connecting and sharing. Join Julie to experience how gathering in community can be a catalyst for transformation.
We will meet Wednesdays, March 14 and 28 from 6-7:30 pm. RSVP required through meetup (We are Transforming Darkness), Facebook (www.facebook.com/juliebirnsnp), or by email to email@example.com.
This mini-series is offered by donation. Suggested donation for series $20-$40.
