HUHA for Healing Justice Day long Healing Space Fundraiser
Sunday, June 2, 12-5 PM
Oakland SOL, 1236 23rd Avenue between International Blvd. and East 12th Street, Oakland CA

The Healing Babes Of Justice (aka BadAss Visionary Healers, aka The Babes) are hosting a day of community-oriented healing sessions with our beautiful network of Bay Area radical healers! This day will be a chance to offer a space to heal for our communities, through affordable, accessible and holistic medicine practices, as well as a way for us to raise funds for our work this summer at the Allied Media Conference.

This summer The Babes are headed to the Allied Media Conference [http://amc.alliedmedia.org/] & The Healing Together Network Gathering [https://talk.alliedmedia.org/amc2013/tpsngs/healing-together]. We have set up the Healers United For Holistic Action Fund (The HUHA Fund) in order to make it possible for us to get out there!

Most of the Core Babes will be offering healing sessions with all of the proceeds going to the HUHA Fund. There will also be other healers offering sessions that day with a portion of their proceeds being donated to the HUHA Fund (percentages dependent on individual healers).

The Babes have been building relationships among radical healers in the Bay Area over the past 2 years; primarily through convening dinners, and educational forums. We strongly believe that attending the AMC & The Healing Together Network Gathering strengthens us as a collective & keeps our shit hella tight when it comes to carrying out our work.

The Healing Together Network Gathering takes place the day before the Allied Media Conference. The mission of the HTNG is to explore and strengthen the work that happens at the intersections of health, healing, media and organizing.

The Healers offering sessions that day are:

Marcelo Garzo: Limpias (Cleansing Ceremony), Sobadas (Body/energy work)
Tieraney Carter: Bodywork/Massage
Leah Lakshmi Piepnza-Samarahinsa: Tarot readings
M’kali-Hashiki: Group Erotic Breathwork Session
Micah Hobbes: Somatic Bodywork

Other Healers TBA (Watch This Space!)

We prefer to have folx pre-schedule a session with their healer, but there will be some day-of slots available.

Please RSVP and schedule a session with your preferred healer by emailing healingbabes@gmail.com. There will also be day of scheduling.

Access info: SOL’s main space is wheelchair accessible. The bathroom is not. So that beloved community members and healers can be present, please come fragrance free. SOL is approx .8 miles from Fruitvale BART.

the short version:

The BadAss Visionary Healers (aka the Healing Babes for Justice) are a 6-person Bay Area-based collective of radical healers who build connections between radical healers in the Bay Area & beyond. In the thick of healing justice movements building and growing, we want to help weave a web of badass healers for liberation so we can support and learn from each other.

We believe in an anti-colonial framework of healing that centers people of color & Indigenous knowledge, the brilliance of disabled bodies, and is all about the queers; sex positive & critical of professionalism & the fee for service model. We work to build a world beyond the medical industrial complex where healing is not for profit or the control of oppressed bodies, but where we transform the impact of generations of abuse, trauma, violence & oppression into/towards justice & healing.
