Gatherings

HOW designs both one-time and recurring events to facilitate meaningful engagement, to aid safe and authentic connection, and to nurture healing, pleasure, and collaboration. We also consult with groups who would like support to create and carry out welcoming and values-driven gatherings and events.


2022 Events

Are you at a personal or professional crossroads, or in a space of transition, healing, and transformation?
Are you committed to personal, interpersonal, and systemic change toward equity and liberation?
Join us as we celebrate and support you through the often lonely and difficult process of challenging norms, breaking patterns, growing into your radical leadership, and collectively building an abundant future.

Over the course 6 months, Healing Our Work co-founders Julia Terry & Kris Smith will facilitate a monthly space for peer support, accountability, intentional practice, emergence, and radical imagination.

Join Healing Our Work to explore, imagine, and create liberatory practices for accountability and repair in our work and lives.

  • To move from intellectualizing to embodying
  • To build an accountable anti-bias anti-racist community of practice
