Recap of Resilience Day 2021
Resilience Day 2021 was a huge success! We gathered at Riverfront Park in Portland, CT to collectively explore, learn, connect and heal as individuals within a community setting.
There was meditation, yoga, breath work, sound healing, drum circles, kendamas, astrological and oracle readings, community art healing, local art, live music and much, much more!
Heres what some people who attended had to say:
"Have you ever experienced the feeling of riding a bike so fast and feeling so free? For me, my helmet always created a sense of safety, no matter how fast I was going and allowed me to enjoy the ride fully! This is how the Resilience Community helps me feel. Despite anything I experience in this lifetime, I know I have a group of soul-full individuals who I can reach out to, completely by myself and feel safe with. I never experienced this feeling of safety from others, until I started attending Resilience Gatherings and Resilience Day brought those feelings to a whole new level. Wholesome people who truly love one another and believe in community! That’s what life is about. It’s what we’re missing so much of in the world today. The day was so beautiful and I’m beyond excited for next year!"
