Parenting at the End of the World

How do we take care of ourselves and each other when we are tending little ones? How is our parenting experience impacted by the identities we hold and the oppressions we face? How can those of us with sensitive nervous systems and histories of trauma find balance while parenting? 

Join us for discussion, journaling exercises, and take-home tools to help you navigate the world of parenting and mental health.
