“Self-care is the constant practice of not letting more pain accumulate. It is about continually remembering that our lives are of value. It is the active process of settling our nervous systems so that we have more access to the present moment.“―Susan Raffo
Self-Care Community Group
A 5 week series
What makes you feel good? What is the unique pace at which you grow? In this series, we unravel the myths of self-care from being an underlying mode of fixing and control, and instead, reclaim the possibility of caring for ourselves in ways that cultivate pleasure, well-being, and ease. It is a time of continuing change – the world is opening up after over a year of containment. How do we nourish through change? What does integration look like right now? And what practices will support us?
Together, we will learn how to listen to our unique bodies. Through practices, rituals, prayer, and more we will connect to the flow of our rhythms, learn our limits, understand the changing seasons of our own bodies, and cultivate resiliency through ancient embodiment systems. In this way, we will plant myriad seeds, some of which will root into the foundation of our lives.
Here, we get to try out and learn. We get to relieve ourselves of a right or wrong way to take care. Instead, we get to journey together and discover what is alive for us and wanted right now.
