January 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Winter is a hard season for many of us. The days are shorter, the quality of light is not as brilliant as the spring and summer months, the cold temperatures limit our activities and often lead us to retreat inside. For these reasons and more, our mental health can really suffer during the winter months. Join us for this creative workshop as we focus on how winter can be a season of healing dormancy and restoration. We will use art to explore the ways that we want to care for ourselves in this season.
