PART TWO of In Conversation with Sheila Jacobs and Nancy Rourke


Part two of Double Pride and Art healing will be hosted by CODA South Africa (CODASA) on 2 October, 2021 at 3 pm SAST. In the first session the presenters spoke at length about the “Inside Team” and how Art could help you to journey with your “Inside Team”. Participants were encouraged to do an activity before we reconvene on October 2, which they will be given an opportunity to talk about. Some activity ideas included:
