Self-Care: There is Only one You

Jun 23, 2021 06:00 PM to 07:45 PM
Microsoft Teams Virtual Meeting

Registration Deadline: Apr 9, 2021 09:00 AM

Workshop Description:
Being a student can mean juggling many roles, a lot of unpaid work, financial precarity and intersecting forms of discrimination. Based on student request, students and staff have co-created this workshop about what is commonly called self-care. But we want a conversation that moves beyond self care and self soothing, to talk about community and structural care too. Taking systemic inequality into account, we talk about how students can set boundaries, identify what is important for themselves, and take care of themselves and their communities. This workshop is a peer-learning space, and we hope to hear from your experiences.

An optional 5 minute meditation will be offered after this workshop.
