It will be led by Roslyn Farrington, a faculty member in PSU's Women's Studies Department since 2002. Farrington has taught the course "Women, Love and Self Care" to PSU students for the last five years.

"This workshop is where women in the community will be able to explore practices that can support their conscious efforts toward being self-loving and affirming on a daily basis. We will make connections between care of our minds, bodies and spirits and better health overall," Farrington said.
