TRE Session Hosted by Brian Goldman and Ana Rosa Najera

TRE(r) is a simple and quick set of movements that turn on our body’s natural rebalancing process-providing an immediate experience of relaxation. By releasing everything from everyday stress to deeply held physical tension and trauma, TRE(r) frees us up to meet life’s challenges with greater skill and ease. Best of all, our bodies do the work; we get relief without needing to process or retell our story.

-Saturday, May 27th, 12-4pm
Queer Visibility Project Portrait Sessions

The Queer Visibility Project (QVP) was developed by Justine Lockerby to capture portraits and stories about queer identity directly from folks in the LGBTQ+ community.

Join her to have your portrait taken and to explore the connection between visibility as empowerment and self-care. Limited makeup & hair touch-up sessions will be available
