“If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete” -Jack Kornfield
“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.”― Audre Lorde
“ I am mine before I am ever anyone else’s “ – Nayyirah Waheed
“We brush and floss but what daily activity do we do to maintain our psychological health?” – Psychologist Guy Winch
Do you think about self care but somehow don’t get around to doing it? Are you uncertain of what self care could look like in your life? How can you manage self care when trauma is a routine part of your personal or professional life? (e.g., #metoo, activism, discrimination, 24-hour news cycle, challenging domestic environments)
In this four-part series we will be deepening our understanding of self-care, the ways and reasons it differs for individuals and communities, and how to develop and sustain a self-care practice that works for you. Ready to take better care of yourself? Do you really have a choice?
Sessions held at Yoga District (1910 14th St NW location) consecutive Thursdays - August 2nd, August 9th, August 16th and August 23rd.
