Holistic Practices for Boosting Self and Community Wellness

September 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

These are not easy times. In order to move through these times, we need practices that support us in healing ourselves and healing our communities. As part of the Nonprofit Wellbeing Series, join Healing by Choice!, a women and gender non-conforming community of healing and health practitioners and their friends in an interactive workshop to learn and share practices to gift ourselves and our communities a boost in our mental, physical and spiritual wellness.


Marcia Lee is a co-madre of Healing by Choice! and a facilitator and coach for PeoplesHub, an online movement school.  She supports individuals and communities in listening to their own inner voice as a facilitator and leadership coach through the Courage and Renewal(r) retreat method.  She holds a master’s in dispute resolution, is a restorative justice peacemaking circle keeper, tai chi instructor, and a seeker of beautiful questions and small joys.  She lives at and runs a small urban retreat space called Taproot Sanctuary in Detroit with her family that invites people to return to living on nature’s grid and in the right relationship with the earth and our neighbors.

Adrienne Roach is known for her experiential approach to life, healing, and Spirituality.  Referred to as the Scientific Mystic, she has a way of making mysterious subjects simple and clear for practical application in everyday life. Her method of delivery is part storytelling and part practice, all in a fun environment. Adrienne is a life-long seeker of knowledge and agent of transformation.  She is a Reiki Practitioner and Instructor, Life Coach, and empath.  She uses nature as a way to gain insight.In addition to Spirit and Healing work, Adrienne is her own apothecary, using herbs and other natural healing agents to assist clients with self-care and healing.

Dr. Shakiyla Smith is the Director of Organizational Culture at Fetzer Institute.  She is a trained yoga and meditation instructor, energy medicine (reiki) practitioner, and facilitator of deeper learning and transformation. She also works with individuals and groups as an action researcher interested in the evolution of consciousness in adults, adult development, and adaptive and collaborative learning using the method of action inquiry. She has a master’s in public health and a Ph.D. in organizational development.  She loves reading, writing, indoor roller skating (with four wheels), and dancing—the balance between action and reflection.
