In a world focused on the continual expectation of achievement, self-care can be a transformative practice, a remedy which reminds us: caring for ourselves is caring for all of Life. Guided by honesty, intuition, delight and the longing that speaks to each of us in a different voice, radical self-care plugs us back into ourselves, one another and is, ultimately, the difference between sustainability and burn--out. In this circle we will: learn to engage self-care in any moment (rather than only during "time off"), and experience self-care practices and build community.
