Self-Care

  • Reclaiming & Reframing Self-Care
    • Self-care is a constant need. In this session, Kasie Holmes, M.A., M.S., will lead us through re-framing and reclaiming the notion of self-care within the global pandemic and within a capitalist society on an individual and collective level.

      This discussion will come from the understanding that self-care has been co-opted in our capitalist society, but it is needed now more than ever with the global pandemic and other crises and violence happening. On an individual level, it is important that we re-frame what self-care means to us and implement that into our lives. On a collective level, we reclaim the idea of self-care from the co-opted and commercialized version of it.

  • Life Writing: Exploring the Art of Journaling
    • Not simply a record of our days, a journal is a space for gathering specific observations and insights that show our unique perspectives on the world. Although professional writers may use a journal for writing material, anyone can enjoy and benefit from the creativity and catharsis of such an experience.
