    It has brought so much clarity to my past experiences, putting words, labels, researched proof to what I didn’t know how to explain or process, I just knew the feelings.

    About you

    Bloom is available to anyone regardless of your background, race, age, disability, religion or belief, sexuality, gender identity or expression, or life circumstances – we are here for you.

    Bloom has been a great experience for me. The course has made me reflect a lot on what it means to "work on yourself" and how that looks like. And through Bloom, I've realized that working on yourself is similar to school or hobbies - it takes commitment, time, and studying. This course is anonymous, accessible, and time sensitive - I think it gives grace to all participants who need that time, space, and encouragement to get through the sessions.
