Who is Helpmate and what do they do? Helpmate of Asheville is a wonderful, local nonprofit providing services to survivors of domestic violence in Buncombe County. Helpmate is a proud onsite partner at the Buncombe County Family Justice Center (FJC), located at 35 Woodfin St in Asheville. Survivors of domestic abuse are welcome to walk-in to access Helpmate’s services Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm at the FJC.
Here at Asheville Date Night, we’re compelled to tell everyone we can about the amazingly important work the folks at Helpmate are doing for women in our community who desperately need their support. Helpmate is providing the tools to work through trauma, teaching how to apply self-care and why it is all so important to move on with their lives to empower women to take back their happiness.
Not only do we want to highlight what Helpmate is doing, we realize so many women, single or in a relationship, are needing the same empowerment tools to better themselves whether it’s through self-care awareness, loving one’s self, connecting with other women, yoga, meditation and embodied breathe work.
So come to this event, It’s for you!

Sarah Poet is the creator and founder of Embodied Breathe, LLC, helping individuals, couples, and organizations to more consciously relate to themselves and one another. Sarah’s experience of having lost her first child to adoption at the age of 19, engaging in a decade-long quest to “get it right” that resulted in absolute depletion, and eventually leaving a career to remember the truth of what calls to her soul has lead her to this passion of helping other women walk their own path of what she’s termed Sacred Remembering. (Also the name of Sarah’s new podcast!)
Sarah Poet believes that every woman has a Truth that she’s not sharing. How we live in relationship to that truth may mean the difference between a life well lived and one of facade. In a world of rising women, let us own our truths – safely, together, and with & for one another. We truly rise together, when each of us honors the truth within.
Sarah will be leading us through a 30-minute Embodied Breathe exercise from 7 – 7:30pm.
What is Embodied Breathe? Embodied Breathe means to feel the embodied ‘yes’ and the embodied ‘no.’ Or how to tell the difference between a ‘yes’ and a ‘no’ in the body.” Tuning in. Listening to what your real truth is for yourself.
She writes raw & truthy pieces investigating life, love, and the experience of the human soul through memoir and poetry at www.sarahpoet.com.

Yoga Bucha is a delicious local creation by local yogi Rosie Greene Mulford. Rosie is dedicated to creating small-batch organic kombucha because ‘Sound Body equals a Sound Mind.’ Mindfulness both whole and small will create the life you want. Just ask Rosie.
Why “Yoga” Bucha? Natural, sustainable, and local. The yogi is not only in tune with themselves, but with the world that surrounds us. The same concept of working with nature and staying in balance with the laws of the universe at large can be applied to every facet of life, so why not with what we consume too? Where can you find more Yoga Bucha?
