Doha, of Muslim Women For, is organizing a healing collective for NC women or any non-man identifying community members and organizers to have bi-weekly calls where we create space to connect/disconnect for an hour or two as we wade through the end of this challenging and strange year. This collective would start early December and go into early January 2021.
The intention of this collective is to create space for our organizers, community members and friends to heal from this year. Participants will decide the weekly activities and topics. Doha will invite various local healers, wellness workers, mental health professionals and other community resources into the space as requested by participants.
We will provide all supplies that would be needed for bi-weekly activities and a stipend for participants to begin to navigate their own self-care and healing practices. The only requirements are for participants to be able to participate on the majority of the calls. Priority will be given to folks that live in the South and folks that identify as Black, Indigenous and or people of color. You do not need to identify as Muslim to participate.
We are hoping to have a cohort of no more than 15 people and participants will be chosen based only on their honest responses to the questions.
Please understand that this collective is experimental and we are hoping to learn from our participants as we navigate this moment in time and as we navigate what “community care” looks like for our people.
This will not be a perfect space and we are counting on participants to shape this space based on their needs and wishes. Doha will contact you after receiving your responses and if you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact her. Thank you for your interest. Your responses to this are completely confidential and will not be shared or seen by anyone except Doha.
