I fully endorse Go to Health! Ambuslatory Care as one of the best existing non-profits; it deserves recognition and support . As a popular educator and arts activist, I can attest to the importance of self-care for activists on the front line of social justice movements, and Kira Laura Ferrand's Heal the Healer PLaYLaB workshop provides activists with the necessary tools to remember to care for themselves, avoid burn-out, keep their feet firmly planted on the ground and replenish their energy.
I had a chance encounter with members of this charity and the acquaintance grew into a profound friendship that enlightened our paths. I walk in beauty thanks to 'heal the healer'.
Go to Health has completely saved me. After several medical situations over the last few years, the information I learned from Kira and her workshops such as "Heal the Healer" helped me more than I can even say. Her compassion, knowledge and accessibility enabled me to thrive and also learn how to take part in my own healing. I can't think of anything more important than that.
I know Kira Ferrand for more than 20 years and I have watched her put Go To Health together despite a work schedule that can only be described as grueling. It's been an inspiration to me to see her "Heal The Healer" workshops evolve from concept to reality over the years and I admire how she has focused on stress reduction via meditation and relaxation techniques. In a health care system plagued by corruption and over reliant on technology, Go To Health is a breath of fresh air,
Go to Health's Heal-the-Healer playlab, facilitated by Kira Ferrand, was amazing and life-changing. The stress reduction techniques I learned have been invaluable. I intend to take the workshop again.
