Why are you excited about Inner Sense Healing Arts Collective?

I remember the first time I talked to Rachel Sherron about an idea to create a collective. Once we realized we had the same dream of creating an inclusive, diverse and warm community more people got involved and it was history! The networking began and now here I stand 2 years after co-creating this non-profit with four inspiring women, THRILLED to open our first space! I'm overjoyed to be working with like-minded folks that believe in the power of change!
