Live discussion sessions and reflections/projects will occur weekly for seven weeks. At the end of the seven weeks, participants will be prepared to submit for the Developing a Healing Centered Self Care Practice micro-credential and OEA members who complete the VLC will be eligible for a $150 stipend.
