Healing through the experience of the Palestinian genocide with the world is a profoundly vital and passionate journey towards solidarity with a liberated Palestine. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has scarred generations, and the impact on those who have lived through it, as well as those who stand shoulder to shoulder with the Palestinian cause, is immeasurable.

Recognize that personal well-being is intertwined with the collective pursuit of a liberated Palestine. Prioritize a balanced diet, regular exercise, stress management, and self-care to sustain the energy and resilience needed for this important cause. This also might mean join or creating sage, healing spaces for community on your own ground level.
