Check out the 15-minute film Through the Door—Movement Meditation & Healing documenting the journey of nine survivors of domestic violence from Esperanza in 2016. Chrysalis (est. 2017) was formed to continue this type of programming and partnership. Read about the film premiere event in the Santa Fe New Mexican.
We are honored to partner with Esperanza Shelter & Resource Center in Santa Fe, NM offering an ongoing creative and contemplative group for survivors of domestic violence. Our current program (spring/summer 2018) is inspired by the book When Women Were Birds by Terry Tempest Williams, following the inspiration from the On the Wing Project, inviting women to read this book in 2018 in honor of Audubon's Year of the Bird, and create something in response. Stay tuned for our forthcoming zine, El Viento Bajo mis Alas: Celebrating the Voices of Winged Women of creative writing from this group.
