1N5 to Host Chardi Kala Retreat

On Saturday, December 12 from 1 – 4 PM, 1N5 will host the first Chardi Kala Virtual Retreat for Asian American youth mental health. Chardi Kala is a Punjabi term for aspiring to maintain a mental state of eternal optimism and joy. To be in ‘Chardi Kala’ is the ability to rise above adversity, challenges, and difficult times. It is to accept whatever is going on in our lives with gratitude and with a neutral mind, trying not to judge it as something negative or positive but rather something that was meant to happen.

Registrants will hear from two speakers, art therapist + psychotherapist Jane Kwon and mental health advocate Michelle Yang, participate in fun activities and open dialogue, and receive a FREE mystery package! Click HERE to register!
