Radical Self-Care Series

“Most of us live in constant stress, which means we’re often running on empty. Many days we wake up wishing life could be different. ….And then we feel even worse.

Sadly, remorse and self-blame after we lose patience doesn’t change anything. Actually, it makes things worse, because it’s hard to act like a loving, happy person when you’re feeling like a bad person.

What if, instead, you could find a way to stay in a positive state more often? You can. Not all the time, of course — into every life some rain must fall. But most of us can find a way to be more positive more often. It starts with finding ways to nurture and nourish ourselves, so we can stay more centered.

Angela Davis explained that radical self-care involves the mind, body and spirit. This series of discussions, activities and workshops were designed to bring strength in a time of crisis. Black women have been viewed in various roles; the backbone, counselor, doctor, healer, negotiator, activist, advocate, and the list goes on.

Throughout our journey, we tend not to consider our well-being. This series is created to meet needs not seen. Radical Self-Care will embrace the concept of caring for yourself: mind, body, and spirit.
This year, a series of programs will be offered. Some will include panel discussions, open discussions, and/or activities. It is important that you pay attention to the email invitations that will be coming your way. All events will require pre-registration.

Pre-registration is now open for all Fall 2020 workshops.

All workshops will begin at 5:30pm via ZOOM. Please pre-register in order to be entered into drawings for great prizes.
