DEAR STRONG BLACK WOMAN – January 21, 2020; 6 – 8 p.m.

A night of connection and conversation surrounding the lived experiences of Black women and how that relates to health and well-being.

REGISTER: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/dear-strong-black-woman-tickets-86345795599

For many black women, the need, desire, and/or expectation to be strong can be both a benefit and a burden. Our lived experience shows that we are strong and resilient people, and science shows that maintaining the ideal of strength often contributes to health outcomes, like diabetes, heart disease, and depression.

Join Jennifer Sterling, creator of Bodyful Healing, in Manhattan, New York for “Dear Strong Black Woman — a safe and intentional gathering where we can explore our experiences as strong black women.

Together we’ll explore what it means to be strong black women — the ways in which it has served us well, and the things we may want to shift or parts of the stereotype we would like to reclaim and/or redefine for our physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being. We’ll do this through conversation, art making, and movement (no dance experience required).

Of course, as a strong black woman, you could do this type of exploration on your own, but you would miss out on the power of human connection and relationship.

You’re not alone and this workshop intends to serve as a reminder of that truth.

Organic refreshments will be served.

**This event is for self-identified black women, please be mindful of this request when registering. **
