Beyond Bath Bombs Workshop: The Myth, Reality, and Strategy of Self-care

Seattle
Tue, Jan 26, 2021, 5:00 PM (PST)

The theme of our chapter for this quarter is self-care. Self-care is expansive and a difficult skill to practice. In this workshop, we come together to identify our personal self-care needs and discover ways we can resolve and heal those needs within ourselves. This workshop will set you up to practice or uncover self-care actions for yourself or others.

Taking care of ourselves and our communities comes with many challenges. One of the biggest challenges? Knowing HOW TO take care of yourself and communities. Empathy and compassion only go so far without an understanding of our needs, strengths, and barriers. They only go so far if we do not know how to act on those emotions. 


Our workshop enables you to experiment with ways of taking care of yourself. You will walk away better prepared to ask yourself "what do I need right now?" and then find ways to act on it. Self-care is a practice and a skill, let us provide a foundation to build on.


If you'd like, you can watch or join the prior presentation on self-care. This is NOT mandatory, but supplemental. For further context on self-care, we recommend reading the following article: http://www.slate.com/articles/arts/culturebox/2017/04/the_history_of_self_care.html

We acknowledge that in Seattle we live on the unceded land of the Duwamish of past and present, and we give gratitude to and honor the land itself. We recognize that Washington state is settled on the land of over 30 indigenous tribes. It is imperative that we honor this land by fighting for environmental justice from the employers and companies that are built on this land.
