Smith Center's U Street location in NW Washington DC - Near Dupont CircleSmith Center programs focus on the concept of healing at its broadest level: as an integrative process that encompasses the entire spectrum of our existence—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Healing evokes our potential for wholeness, making our perspectives larger and wiser. It helps us to find meaning and explores our most fulfilling ways of being, relating and creating in the world.

Smith Center Now Hosting Support Groups for the Latino Community in Spanish

Nueva Vida is an independent nonprofit that provides free, comprehensive, culturally competent cancer services to medically underserved Latino families in the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia (as far south as Prince William County), Suburban Maryland (Montgomery & Prince George’s Counties), Richmond, and Baltimore. Other services include outreach to the Latino community and Patient Navigation for cancer screenings and treatment. 

At Smith Center, Nueva Vida will be providing support groups that are focused on supporting the trauma associated with a cancer diagnosis. These groups provide Latina women the opportunity to experience a catharsis of feelings, where they feel safe to identify, verbalize, empathize, and share their feelings with others who are in similar circumstances. All support group meetings are paired with a stress reduction activity (either Zumba or Yoga).

Nueva Vida offers support groups every Saturday and Smith Center will be hosting the Nueva Vida support group on the

following dates: 

  • July 11
  • July 18
  • July 25
  • August 1
  • August 8
  • August 15
  • August 29
  • September 5

While most of us don’t think of ourselves as poets, in a safe space and with the guidance of a gifted facilitator, we can unleash the poetry that resides within us. The benefits of creative expression as a path to healing are well known. Join us to experience the powerful, mysterious and often surprising gifts that emerge as you listen to poetry, participate in simple exercises to get the juices flowing, and then begin to write. Come to one session or all three to immerse yourself in poetry this summer.

Session Dates:

  • July 2
  • August 6
  • September 3

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.

Suggested donation for one session: $15

Suggested donation for serires: $35

About Elise Wiarda
Elise has been leading the poetry writing sessions, Speaking Our Truth, at Smith Center’s weeklong cancer retreats for many years. You could say that poetry is in her blood. She grew up in the Netherlands. Her mother, who died at the age of 101, knew more than 150 poems by heart in four languages, and read poetry to her children all the time. Elise’s daughter is a published poet and a tenured professor at Barnard. Elise has a long history in the art world, and for the past thirty years has been a mind/body therapist. She has a private practice in her home in Cabin John.
