Filling Our Cups: An In-Town Retreat for Activists, Organizers, Healers, Social Change Makers
With Krista Hanson and RW Alves
Are you feeling frenzied by the urgency of need for social and racial justice work right now?
Do you sometimes find that you forget to feed yourself (literally or metaphorically!) because you’re so busy feeding others and doing the important work you do in the world?
Could you use a reset and grounding in self and community care, to connect with yourself and your own care practices?
Would you like to experience being held in community by other folks who get where you’re coming from?
Join us for a second (bigger and we hope even better!) round of this in-town retreat for activists, organizers, healers, and social change makers to reset and reconnect with ourselves and our communities. We’ll use a variety of practices including restorative yoga, lovingkindness meditation, partner yoga, yin yoga, and visualization to explore what grounds and supports us when things are hectic and the stakes feel high. We promise your work will still be there when we finish our time together, but hopefully you’ll leave the workshop feeling more grounded, nourished, and able to engage in a renewed way because of the time you’ve taken for yourself.
Let’s practice together to ground our work in love and hopefulness, and to move forward into the new world we’re creating with integrity and a commitment to caring for ourselves and each other!
