We are excited to announce: The Self Care Project 2016
It’s been three years since a group of us launched The Self Care Project – aiming to create a space where we could wrestle with the challenges of taking care of ourselves and others amid a world in crisis. We’ve had nearly 60 people participate so far, and we are thrilled to be heading into another year!
You care about the world. A lot. Ironically, this can mean that your own wellbeing can end up at the bottom of the list of people, issues and campaigns that matter so deeply. Enter… The Self Care Project.
It’s a simple experiment in helping you be more resilient. Why? Because the world needs you. Not the exhausted, frustrated, caffeine and carbo-loaded you, but the you that is effective, powerful, clear-sighted and inspired in your work for the common good of our planet and communities.
Who are we?
We’re a group folks not too different from you. We want to take our self-care seriously, while not taking ourselves too seriously. We think it’s a recipe for stronger, sustainable movements, with healthier and happier people behind them.
What does it look like?
Most of the project will happen in small groups (of 12-16) with a facilitator. We will open with a full-day orientation, followed by 8 evening sessions – one evening every second week, from 7-9 pm, in people’s homes. There will be a mix of activities and resources, space to learn, reflect and connect.
