Healix Collective Presents…
HOPE SPRINGS HIGH: A Benefit for the People’s Climate Movement

Winter was long, and winter was cold (in our hearts), but it is time to emerge from the darkness seeking renewed energy and light; for a light exists in Spring, as the Earth awakes from its slumber.

Let us rise from the ashes: it is time to come together to protect this planet who bore us all. Let us celebrate life by resisting humankind’s legacy of destruction and fostering a new legacy of nurturing and growth we wish to leave behind.
