Have you ever found it hard to manage self-care when juggling classes, exams, family, friends, and work? Do you ever experience issues taking care of yourself because self-care was not promoted or discussed in your culture or community? Do you feel misunderstood or guilty when you attempt to set boundaries related to self-care?
Whether you are a racialized or non-racialized person, this workshop will allow you to better understand how and why we coined the term self-care. In recognition of Truth and Reconciliation Day, we will also honor current issues within Indigenous communities, as well as Indigenous knowledge and sacred ways of practicing radical self-care to maintain community, connection and solidarity.
