    Practicing Care in a Time of Climate Crisis

    A tan banner with nature graphics and a brown skinned woman with her hair in a braid reads Practicing Care in a time of climate crisis, a Conversation and healing practice with Meda DeWitt. Below is text that reads Saturday, July 9, 2–4 pm | NAYA Community Garden  RSVP at www.opalpdx.org/care

    How can we practice caring for ourselves and for one another in this time of mass climate disaster?

    Explore this question with us on Saturday, July 9 at Practicing Care in a Time of Climate Crisis, an event with Meda DeWitt, a Tlingit traditional healer, Historical Trauma and Healing trainer, and ethnoherbalist. Meda’s work revolves around the personal credo “Leave a world that can support life and a culture worth living for.” Her work experience draws from her training as an Alaska Native traditional healer and Healthy Native Communities capacity building facilitator. We will talk about how the climate crisis impacts our bodies and mental health, do a short meditation and shared energy work, and make salves to take home. 

    RSVPs are required for this in-person, outdoor event and attendance is capped at 50 people. Due to NAYA’s COVID protocol, there will not be access to indoor facilities, but there will be an outdoor bathroom and handwashing station. Masks required when within 6 feet of others. The garden is wheelchair accessible.
