The Roads Series

A lecture series inspired by the incredible journey’s of chronic Illness warriors and Zebras. From patients, professionals, therapists, doctors, creatives and friends, we hope to bring a little less pain and a little more hope to your life.

We have to live differently.

As we embody what it means to survive with our without a sense of choice, this online and in-person series of lectures and experiences are made to help integrate what we see, feel, taste, smell, and hear outside of our bodies and notice them within the body itself. Bring them in, and re-connect with that thing which makes our survival so much of a struggle.

From academic lectures on rare disorders and complications to sound bathing, healing oils and music, Umi hopes to lighten your load.

Rachel giving an intro workshop to Bones for Life (R) work of Dr. Ruthy Alon. Young woman in a Bones Wrap feeling relief in hips, spine and head pressure. Rachel explaining how joints are “brought home.”

Classes are offered in 6 week or 8 weeks blocks with rest periods between.

Most classes have both in-person and online options! There is much you can do from the comfort of your home. 

Our wellness philosophy:

Why use a club when a feather works even better?
