This is a thought-provoking in-person gathering where we delve into the intricate landscape of emotions amidst the societal challenges of our time, such as homelessness and addiction.
This workshop offers more than just a discussion; it's an opportunity for genuine connection, story-sharing, and practical strategies to maintain emotional well-being.
Feeling All the Feels: Explore the diverse range of emotions that emerge when confronting societal challenges. Share your experiences and perspectives in a supportive, face-to-face environment.
Being Kind to Others and Ourselves: Delve into the transformative power of compassion. Learn to balance empathy without feeling overwhelmed through the sharing of personal stories, fostering genuine connections.
Keeping It Real: Acknowledge the shared desire to create positive change while staying grounded in realism. Discuss the value of personal efforts and the acceptance of not having all the answers.
Taking Care of YOU: Discover practical self-care strategies, including mindfulness, establishing a solid support system, and setting boundaries for emotional well-being in our day-to-day lives.
Action in Bite-Size Pieces: Embrace the concept that significant change often begins with small, manageable steps. Share and brainstorm ideas on how to contribute positively within personal limits, empowering each other to make a difference.
Let's reflect through enriching discussions, understanding that it's perfectly acceptable not to have all the answers. This is a continuous journey of learning and growth.
The workshop doesn't mark the end of the conversation; it's an invitation to continue these discussions in our daily lives and prioritize self-care to effectively care for others.
