ComeUnion: Caring Gathering & Exchange is a platform for bodyworkers, herbalists, somatic practitioners and people seeking healing services to congregate. This shared space is open for the interchange of goods, services, remedies, and practices through alternative economies. Each individual and practitioner will mutually determine negotiations of practices and remedies. All negotiations (trading, bartering, samples, discounts, sliding scales, donations, etc.) are to take place in a spirit and intention to co-create more accessible healing spaces while honoring the labor of caring.

The curators have already invited body practitioners to offer their practices for exchange with other artists.

This is a space self-governed by those who partake in it. Questions about this event? Email [email protected]
