Vibes Activity Facilitator's Guide

This activity book is a resource for co-ops to grab activities to be used to build relationships, healthy communication, better self-care and other positive vibes for their co-ops. The book is intended as a facilitator's guide of sorts that allows the meeting chairperson to select activities to use either at regular meetings or for special meetings or activities.
