The power of community

  • by

Hemma is a home to welcome you as you are. Our staff, volunteers, ┬ástudents, and patients quickly feel like family around here. The Yoga and Acupuncture we offer is often healing, though I believe it’s the sense of community and support that keeps many of us coming back again and again. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve wept tears of gratitude for this feeling of home here.

Today I’d like to ask for support from you, the community, for one of our amazing teachers. Pilar Munoz has been teaching here for the past year and she shows up with generosity, integrity, and a deep sense of caring for her students. Her vibrant 12 year old daughter, Tree, recently received brain surgery to remove a tumour. The surgery was successful, though it will take time for her to recover and wait for test results. What we can do as a community it hold space for Tree’s healing and the family’s support. You can do this by sending love, sending prayers, dedicating the merit of your practice. Now is when the power of intention, the power of community really counts.

If you’d like to contribute financially to support the family, there is a gofundme page set up – please share it! We will also be donating the proceeds from all of our community classes in January. You can drop in for these on Mondays or Wednesday at 12:30-1:30pm.

Big love to Tree, Pilar, and the whole family,
