On Healing: A With/out Pretend event

  • Burdock Toronto 1184 Bloor Street West Toronto, ON Canada (map)

A storytelling event brought to you by With/Out Pretend (the same folks who bring you events like Unresolved Feelings and Unruly Bodies), this feelings-forward evening will be all about HEALING. Healing is a vast and complex topic, one that can be both personal and political. Rumi said, "The wound is the place the light enters you." Audre Lorde said, "Your silence will not protect you. What are the words you do not have yet? What do you need to say?" Terese Marie Mailhot says, "The pain was a process to understanding." We've invited 10 women to the stage to share their stories about the paths they've taken to be well, the words they still need to say, and the places they find compassion, comfort, and community.
