Circle of Support | a virtual LaunchPad session

May 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


This online healing circle will help us identify where to find & receive support in our relationships.

As entrepreneurs, we carry a lot of responsibility and oftentimes it feels like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. Our desire to provide services to support our communities and our families can be so strong, we can fall out of balance between giving support and receiving it. Especially in times of crisis and pandemic, supporting one another becomes even more important.

In this gathering, we will explore our circles of support- identifying where we can turn when we need the support we so often give. In a time of growing Mutual Aid networks, assessing our relationships, and clarifying/strengthening them where possible, can help us feel more whole and be prepared to navigate the ups and downs, moving from independence to interdependence.
