Have you ever thought of self-care as self-ish or self-centered? Me too.
But here are a few ways to expand that sense of Self and build community:
Join the Birth Your Book Facebook group.
Support Vola in schools, where storytelling & yoga are taught as social-emotional tools for those who need it most.
Inspire other womxn writers in telling their stories through memoir, non-fiction, children’s books, & more.
Help create Vola courses for tweens & teens & join Vola as a guest instructor or affiliate.
To find out more…
One of the best ways to create community is through our retreats…

“I worked with June last summer. It was a really tough time for me. I was moving from one state to another and starting a new job. My meditation reflection sessions with June helped me get off to a great start. The only word I can use to describe meditation sessions with June is transformative. I had some of the most moving and meaningful meditation sessions I’ve ever experienced in my life. She reaffirmed for me the power of self-love, being present, being OK with being imperfect and the need to take care of myself with love and compassion. Thank you June, and if you’re reading this, try a session. You won’t regret it!”
