WHY CARMEN SHARES

“I share because I care deeply about finding ways to support others in alleviating stress and suffering. I also feel passionate about discovering creative ways that lead to healing and that nurture a sense of connection and wellbeing. I strongly believe that the best approach to explore those ways of alleviating suffering, healing, and nurturing wellbeing is to come together with a caring community where everybody wants the same—and that is exactly what Share Collaborative has to offer.”
