We invite you to join us on a journey of self-compassion.
Our road begins with willingness, witnessing, and wonder.
Let’s embrace ourselves and the true beauty of all humanity in its many forms.
Through compassionate listening, expressive writing, inspired poetry, and work of the hand we will cultivate compassionate care for the self - claiming our inner voice which speaks and listens with dignity.
Participants will also be invited to explore community witnessing through active acts of compassion -- acts of service respecting the wholeness of others from a space of one’s own self-compassion.
Cost: $250 | Scholarships available & special pricing for two or more friends.
To register, contact email@example.com or text (205) 441-8462.

Elizabeth Vander Kamp | Birmingham, Alabama
Elizabeth agrees with Mr. Rogers, “listening is where love begins.” The journey to become a better listener sent Elizabeth to Boston, where she worked with people who have special needs, made donuts, nanny-ed, typed and learned to act. She then moved to New York City, where she wrote two one-woman shows, performing and touring with one of them. Back home in Alabama, after decades away, Elizabeth works as an Artist in Residence with the University of Alabama at Birmingham Arts in Medicine Program. Her main art form is hospital bedside storytelling. She has found the greatest joy in story-listening! She brings decades of experience as a teacher, artist, wellness coach, workshop facilitator, certified Zentangle Teacher, Reiki practitioner, and explorer of the human heart to her work along with a sense of wonder and fun.
