Last year we did a creative workshop that nurtured so much positivity amongst attendees, we decided to do it again.
Melissa Kester, LMFT & Sarah Lebeck-Jobe, MS will lead a creative healing group where we explore our personal connection to our feminine selves. We will have a playful couple of hours discussing what the idea of womanhood evokes in each of us. We also will create drawings to assist in our exploration of our personal visions of womanhood.
This month’s charity is Girls Educational and Mentoring Services (GEMS). GEMS’ mission is to empower girls and young women, ages 12–24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking to exit the commercial sex industry and develop to their full potential. GEMS is committed to ending commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking of children by changing individual lives, transforming public perception, and revolutionizing the systems and policies that impact sexually exploited youth.

In the winter time our homeless population heads to the local shelter. Yet not all shelters offer daytime care and many lack a sufficient number of beds. This leaves men, women and children in danger of being left outside. With an increase number of homeless due to unemployment, leaving a 8% shelter increase from 2008-2009, we can do something to help our neighbor.
Please join us for our first Healing Saturday on February 4th. Madison MFT will be hosting an introduction to knitting class from 11-2pm. There will be a suggested docation of $25.00 and all proceeds will go to aid NYC’s Homeless. Class will be held at Madison MFT: 271 Madison Ave., Ste. 1400
You will start your first knitting project: a scarf
(If you wish to donate a scarf, please bring one for a collection that will go to a local shelter.)
Please bring your own yarn and needles. (If you have never knitted before I recommend bulky yarn for ease.)
