We told you that we had more announcements along the way. As a means to create additional paths of collaboration, the 2019 Who Heals the Healer Planning Committee is pleased to share this call for submissions to the first edition of an e-book, tentatively titled Who Heals the Healer Vol 1.
Our vision is as follows: As tensions rise, so has the need for more healers. The waymakers, the agents of change, the ones armed with compassion. But how many folks who step into this work have become burnt out or hurt along the way? What kind of long-term impact can we have if we don’t share the same healing methods we give to others with ourselves? How can we be a support system for others without depleting ourselves? How can we develop tools to thrive as opposed to just surviving? Who heals the healer? A large scale conference of the event series, the intention of the convergence is to cultivate an ecosystem rooted in community care for wellness, social justice and healing practitioners who can hold space for one another as they continue to hold space for community. The curated techniques and solutions from this series will be shared widely in the form of a publication.
We are looking for: The words, essays, poems, and more of BIPOC, GNC and QTPOC folks who resonate with the above vision.
DEADLINE: Please share your pitch no later than May 1st. Our goal is to release the inaugural volume in late June.
