For generations, arguably centuries, women’s stories have been told and reinterpreted by men.  Also, the lens of women’s mental health has been defined through a Eurocentric lens, primarily defined by white men. Deviations from the male Eurocentric norms are often seen as pathology. Patriarchal and Eurocentric systems of thought analysis have often perpetuated the soul wounds of women and created the intergenerational trauma of being powerless, devalued, disconnected from community, and left struggling to have hope in a future life they want to have.  This recording examines an indigenous decolonized model of healing and participants will have a chance to experience this model themselves.
