The Well Healing

Free Meditations

Hey Wellness Warriors! Can you believe that we are nearing the end of the 2021 year? There are many expectations and emotions connected to the "holiday season" and instead of gearing up for the chaos, we are winding down for a month of rest. We encourage you to acknowledge your needs this season and do what is most aligned for your body, mind, and Spirit!
Check out our free meditations for extra support in your stillness practice and self-connection. Available in English and Spanish. Get listening below and share with a loved one today!

Exploring Queer x BIPOC...

Acacia DEU Committee

Join us in our first Acacia DEIJ Committee-sponsored panel! We welcome Soraiya Khamisa, LCSW, Kala Lacy, AMFT + CYT, and James Green, LMFT!
