Lunch & Learn: Raw and Creatively Healthy
Lunch & Learn: Raw and Creatively Healthy with Nzingah Oniwosan
Art for self-care is a modality that is often dismissed or ignored and yet it has a tremendous impact on our health. In this workshop, Nzingah Oniwosan of “YesBabyIlikeitRaw.com” shares her unique approach to holistic health and her own discovery of self-love through creative arts therapy and good nutrition. Join us for a discussion on how non-traditional creative healing practices can profoundly support mental health, manage stress, and improve our overall wellbeing.
