Self Care Leadership Project (Pam Orbach, Kristen Jawad) (The Workshop Space - Greenwood Seattle)

"You can't pour from an empty cup." If It seems counterintuitive to spend time nurturing and connecting to yourself, when there is so much need for action out in the world. The question is, "What would it be possible to do, if you felt fully nourished, abundantly resourced and grounded?" Less burnout -More effective actions and empowerment for social change. We are creating a community that will be intentional about self-care in a way that has integrity with our values, and that sustains us for the long haul. If you’re involved in social change or service work in some way, if you feel depleted and you’re interested in developing deepening practices of self-care, we invite you to join us.
