CONNECT WITHIN Wholistic Healing Fair for Women

Location: 
127 W. 127th Street, Suite. 432, Harlem, NY 10027

Unhealed trauma is responsible for conditions many of us struggle with like depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and even heart disease. Therapy is not the only option you have. There are many effective wholistic healing tools that are based in rich cultural traditions that we have been disconnected from. If you’re a survivor who’s feeling stressed out, frustrated with your kids and family, or so overwhelmed with all you have to do that you can’t focus, we made this for you. Come and explore the different healing options you can use to restore your spirit and balance your life.

THIS FAIR IS FREE OF COST
